Publisher's Summary

One girl. One turtle. One epic voyage!

When Nelly says she's going to do a thing, she does it. Learn to juggle china cups? Of course! Live on lemons for a month? Why not?

Set out in a boat with knitted sails to find her long-lost father, with only her turtle, Columbus, for company? Absolutely! And she won't let anything get in her way.
