Synopsis

Fireflies, fireflies, light my way. Lead me to the place where the turtles play. Follow the fireflies to a magical nighttime place where turtles play, bullfrogs leap, and other animals swim, paddle, and dive. Inspired by a Native American lullaby, and illustrated with rich, luminous paintings, this celebration of the natural world is an irresistible invitation to youngsters, well-grounded in ecological fact ( "Publishers Weekly" ). Jonathan London is the author of many picture books, including his popular books about Froggy. He lives in California. This is Linda Messier
 

About Jonathan London

See more books from this Author
Jonathan London, who lives in Graton, California, prefers sandals to shoes, but he knows that nothing beats socks for dancing. When he's ready to put the extra slip in his slide, he kicks off his flip-flops and puts on some tube socks. When Jonathon isn't a sensation on the dance floor, he is a rage on the page with over forty books for children to his credit, including "Froggy Gets Dressed, Hip Cat, Like Butter on Pancakes, " and "Puddles." He lives with his wife and two sons.
