Moon is relaxing by the sea when she suddenly sees Green Turtle. He is frowning and beckons her to follow, as he has an important message for her. They head out immediately on a journey around the world.

Along the way, they find oil spilled on the beach, men setting traps to catch minks and foxes, and a town meeting where people complain about the damage wild animals are doing to their landscaping. When they return home, Green Turtle offers some hope to Moon, who is determined to try to change things while she still can.

Man often has no regard for the animals who share the planet with us. Moon’s Messenger reminds kids that they have a responsibility to care for the earth. This is a timely message for all of us.
