The Turtle and the Island: A Folk Tale From Papua New Guinea
From the publisher:
The story of how the great sea turtle builds the island of Papua New Guinea. Wishing for a place to rest in the sun, he piles up the sand and rocks until they emerge from the sea into a beautiful, fertile island. In doing so, he finds a wife and a home for the lonely man in the dark cave, far beneath the waves. A beautifully-told creation myth with stunning illustrations.
No greater insight into a country’s soul than looking at their creation story.
