Duffy’s Lucky Escape will transport you to a tropical paradise where Duffy the Sea Turtle lives amongst beautiful coral reefs and colourful fish, only for Duffy to learn that not all that floats is food. As time is running out Duffy has a lucky escape when kind people step in to save the day.


A positive, inspiring, beautifully illustrated true story about the problem of ocean plastics with a happy ending.


Launched in September 2017 and already loved by over 500,000 children, teachers and parents worldwide, Duffy’s Lucky Escape is the engaging story of the relationship between humans and wildlife and the dangers sea turtles face in their own natural habitats. Stunning artwork captures the imagination of young readers and brings to life a very real threat ocean plastics pose to our oceans.


Duffy’s Lucky Escape is based on true events and it is this powerful message which invites children and adults alike to question their environment and the plastic pollution within it. With suggestions for the future and links to activities which reinforce the story, Duffy’s Lucky Escape is a book which will inspire young readers to make changes to the world around them.


The Wild Tribe Heroes books have received personal letters of congratulations from Sir David Attenborough and Prince Charles who are both extremely concerned about the issue of ocean plastics and are doing everything they can to help raise awareness. The books have been featured on the BBC, in The Guardian, Mail on Sunday and Huffington Post as well as numerous local newspapers, radio and TV and also featured in international podcasts, blogs and press.


Suitable for pre-school children up to year 6.

  • What does it replace and is it an improvement?

    The Wild Tribe Heroes children's book range is not a replacement as such, but more a way to inspire the next generation to make more eco-conscious choices about the way they choose to live. 


    The books are printed in the UK using sustainable vegetable inks and FSC certified paper.


    The lovely author has also signed the books.

  • What is my review?

    These are a brand new product, just launched! I have a little bundle of joy on the way, but otherwise have no lovely little ones to review the books for me. Any reviews you can give me on your experience with these books would be greatly appreciated so that I can update this section for others. Just visit the Contact page to send me an email!


    Despite not having any little ones to try the books, I have read the books myself and I love how they are written for a younger audience. They give the information across but in a way that is light-hearted and not disturbing. I also love the bright illustrations and the information sections at the back of the book. Such a great way to encourage our next generation!


    My initial rating: 10/10
