Fourth title in the Spin the Globe: The Incredible Adventures of Frederick von Wigglebottom series. This particular adventure takes Frederick to the tropical island of St. George's Caye off the coast of Belize. Frederick meets K'ayab, a boy of Mayan heritage, and Hayá, a Garinagu girl as they release two rehabilitated sea turtles into the sea and learn about the marine and jungle animals of this tiny Caribbean nation, the diverse Belizean, Garinagu and Mayan history and cultures. This book also comes with a special section dedicated to Sea Turtle Facts.
Buiti binafi! That means ‘good morning’ in the Garifuna language. My name is Hayá and my name means 'she smiles'. I am Garinagu and my father operates a dive boat here on St George's Caye. I love to smile, laugh, learn about my Garinagu culture and especially dancing the punta.
Gud Mawnin! My name is K'ayab which means turtle in Mayan. I was born in Belmopan, the capital city of Belize. My parents are ecologists that study endangered sea turtles. I teach Frederick about the animals of the coral reef and jungle and Mayan history.
