This is the second Grumpy and the green parrot book that I have listened to by Susan Chapman. This one was just as sweet as the last (Mr. Squirrel finds a treasure). In this adventure Grumpy and the Green Parrot go fishing and come across a big red fish. Although this big red fish is not a fish at all. In fact it is a Balloon. They then come across a Sea Turtle who has a cracked shell from a boating accident. Working together they help to rescue the Sea Turtle.

Another wonderful story with a great message about keeping our waters free from polution and looking after our wonderful wildlife. Although I cant figure out why the Iguana was born in the turtle hospital!

This is my third listening to "Grumpy", like the other stories, this is about saved nature and animals.

Another day, another adventure with Grumpy and green parrot. They rent a boat for a day for fishing. They didn't catch a fish but did gain a new friend.

I enjoy these very short stories of Grumpy. They are full of friendships, happy animals that care for each other. And of course, The narrator is great, too.

Thanks to Netgalley, I have given an honest review of Two if by Sea (a Grumpy the Iguana and Green Parrot Adventure Book 3) by Susan Chapman, Narrated by Trevor Gobel.

An enjoyable short audiobook with a good narrator. It’s a sweet story about two friends, a parrot and an iguana who save a turtle and tell the reader some important things about looking after our environment.

My 5 year old and 2. 5 year old both really enjoyed listening to this series while they were in the bath. Definitely a book I would add to their collection.

What a wonderful little story! My 5 year old loves this and we listen to this on repeat most nights! Grumpy & the green parrot's adventure to on the sea helps us learn a thing or two about pollution & helping others. It helps the children understand how human life is interfering with marine life and how the aquatic beings are being affected. On the other hand, when Grumpy and the parrot help the Giant sea turtle, we understand how important it is to support each other in our community and in turn gain some great friendships!

My cousin just had her second baby and I want to get her some more books. 2 years ago when she had her daughter, I sent her an adorable animal backpack for young children filled with classic books. She loved it. So now I am looking for some books a little different. She is a math teacher, loves science, was raised on a farm with many different animals, and cares deeply for the environment. Her husband shares these values.

I got an Audio copy of Two if by Sea, but am really glad to see it is a book as well. I think I will order this one.

The story is terrific. Grumpy the Iguana and The Green Parrot go out on a Sailboat. They are going Fishing. This is a wonderful way to read to children about saving the environment. At first they think they have caught a big Red Fish, but realize it is a balloon. That is a good thing though, since balloons are bad for Fish and can kill them.

Next, they find a Sea Turtle with a broken shell. Luckily, Grumpy knows all about an animal hospital that can save the Turtle. I found out places like this really do exist. So, Grumpy and The Green Parrot don’t catch any fish, but save a creatures life.

So, endearing and adorable characters. Funny, too. I gave it 4* because I had the audio version and would love to have seen the pictures. I liked listening for myself, but would much rather have the book. It was a good way to find out about the book and see if I liked the story. I did.

Thank you NetGalley, Susan Chapman, and IBPA for an Audio copy. I really appreciate it.

In Two if by Sea we are back with Grumpy the Iguana and the Green Parrot for their next adventure. They are headed fishing but first are met again with pollution in the ocean. By the time they figure out this is a balloon and not a fish they have veered off course and found themselves lost. To the rescue is a giant sea turtle who can guide them home, but he has a man-made problem of his own that he needs help with. With a shout out to the turtle rehab facilities in the Florida Keys the new friends make a plan to get home and get the sea turtle the help he needs.
While the environmental issues are more subtle in this one (compared to Mr Squirrel finds a Treasure) they are still present and great discussion starters with your children. They may not be as easy for the kids to pick up on depending on their ages without the parent-led discussion, however.
My kids have asked to listen to this one (and Mr. Squirrel) several times since first listening a couple weeks back and I don't see them slowing down on the requests soon.
