About the author:
Yvette is an English teacher who was inspired to write Wayan and the Turtle King after spending almost two years in Indonesia. While living in Indonesia, she couldn’t help but notice that plastic was everywhere, including in the ocean. As a scuba diver and free diver, the marine environment has always been very important to her. The book has been translated into French, Indonesian, Spanish, and Taiwanese to promote literacy and environmental education worldwide. All sales are put back into further project development: translation, printing, and distribution to environmental and literacy charities in Indonesia, Taiwan, Central and South America, and beyond.
