Zonk is a little Sonoran desert tortoise who decides to find the ocean and become a sea turtle. Hiking with his friends, Bunny, Snake and Coyote, he sees a rock with the picture of a sea turtle swimming. Coyote explains, It s a sea turtle. They live in the ocean and there is water everywhere. Everyone laughed. Water everywhere! But to Zonk, locked in his heavy shell, floating on a cool quiet ocean sounds divine.

This was a gift for my nieces. They love the color of the illustrations and the story
Love this children's book and especially the artwork. The bright beautiful water colors keep my child engaged and we went so far as to buy some prints to hang up in his room.
This book is so clever with maps of secret lagoons. This is the second book in a series, which continues the tradition of incredible and colorful artwork. It is educational as well as entertaining. A book that the whole family will love. Animal lovers will especially enjoy it with green sea turtles, tiny porpoises, and long nose bats.
Zonk and the secret lagoon is a very creative and nice book for kids. I like it that the main character "Zonk" makes new friends on his journey home. The characters in the book are fun and creative. Each page is artwork by itself. Overall, this is a very nice book for kids of all ages.
This is a wonderful children's book! The illustrations are brilliant. I loved the all the sea animals, especially Zonk. The story is cute and funny.
Kids will love this book.
We bought this book for our five year old, but it is a delight for the whole family. The map of the secret lagoon on the opening page is an endless delight to our youngest, as are all the beautiful pictures of the turtles, the whale, the bats, the crabs, the vaquita (the world's smallest porpoise and also the world's most endangered porpoise we learn from the book) and all the other sea creatures. The story of Zonk's adventures in the lagoon leading to his homesickness for the desert and his attempt to find his way home keeps the attention of the older children. My wife and I particularly like the spectacular colors of the illustrations and the humor. These are some of the best illustrations of any children's book we have seen. This would be a great gift for any family.
This is a great book with wonderful illustrations. The adventures of little Zonk continue in this sequel to Zonk: the Dreaming Tortoise. My daughter really likes Zonk and she often picks this book to read. I think she is attracted to the gorgeous colors and the vulnerable/take charge attitude of the main character. I would recommend this highly to any parent who wants to introduce their children to the wonders of the Sonoran Desert and the Sea of Cortez.
Again a wonderful collection of beautiful artwork as well as an adventure through the Secret Lagoon with Zonk.
