Description

The garden's in trouble! Slimy Super-Slugs led by the evil Cyber Snail are headed for the vegetable patch. T.T. jumps out of the tree and out of his shell. With a backflip and a bump he lands in a leaf-pile. There's a clank and a clonk, a rustle and a bonk. He is ready for action in his turbo shell with super powered jets - he is Turbo Tortoise - superhero! Can Turbo Tortoise and his trusty sidekick, Karate Crow, defeat the evil Cyber Snail and save the vegetable patch from destruction?

About the author:
Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor of Noddy magazine, the voice of a Dalek and an editor of fiction and non-fiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the fantastically successful Astrosaurs series for young readers and Cows in Action. Sam Church studied Illustration at Bristol and having got his degree, he decided to stay. He has worked as a freelance illustrator ever since. A pen and ink man at heart, Sam works in a variety of media including gouache, watercolour and increasingly (despite a secret belief it is the devil's work), digitally. His trademarks are a sense of fun twinned with strong draughtsmanship. Turbo Tortoise is Sam's first picture book.
