The Sea Turtle Spy Project (Putney Hicks Inventor Adventures–Book 4) by Marsha Tufft is a children’s adventure story that would appeal most to a mixed audience of children and preteens who enjoy mystery adventure stories. Putney Hicks is a 12-year-old self-proclaimed wannabe artist/inventor who has set her mind on saving the babies of Stumpy (a 400-pound loggerhead sea turtle). They may be doomed when they emerge from their nest and follow the porch lights they see, not heading for the safety of the ocean, but instead inland where they will be easy prey. Will Putney and Sam (her magic eyePad) be able to save the baby turtles all while also keeping Sam out of the nefarious hands of a secret organization determined to make use of Sam’s capabilities for themselves?
Move over Nancy Drew and Angus MacGyver and make room for Putney and Sam in The Sea Turtle Spy Project by Marsha Tufft. As someone who has lived in Hilton Head, I really liked how the author incorporated the problem-solving process and prototype screen that was utilized to save two sea turtle nests on Hilton Head Island. I liked the team-building exercise that Putney and her group did at the start of the book. This was a great way to familiarize myself with the characters, as I have not read any of the previous books in the series. Overall, I feel this would have been one of my favorite books had I been able to read it while I was in middle school. I loved the focus on saving baby animals as well as the high-tech aspects that came from Sam’s inclusion!
