Like his Sam the Sea Cow, author Francine Jacobs investigates the life of another sea creature, Lonesome George the Giant Tortoise by Francine Jacobs, illus. by Jean Cassels. Here she tells the true story of a 50-year-old tortoise from the Gal pagos Islands. Even though goats have eaten most of the food on the island, and the other tortoises have died out, George has survived-the last known saddleback tortoise from Pinta Island.
