The legend of #MPRraccoon continues! New York City's Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is the largest in the world, and its star is so big and bright that it can be seen from the North Pole. But a storm is on its way, and the star may not shine long enough for Santa to know where to land... Can she hang on long enough to save Christmas?

(Copies of this special 2018 holiday story are sold out!)

Inspired by a real-life tortoise named Toby... Galapagos or Bust! is a fun story of friendship, courage, and the discovery that home is where the heart is. Ruby's life in the small town of Hope, MN is about to change forever when she rescues a tortoise stranded in a Minnesota blizzard. She bravely promises to help him find his home, and the two embark upon a wild adventure across America. They find danger and serendipity with each passing state line, until reaching the Pacific Ocean where it becomes Ruby who must be rescued. And Toby is just the friend to help, if he can reach her in time. EQ Wright's debut novel follows their journey from the Como Zoo in snowy Minnesota to the Honolulu Zoo in sunny Hawaii, where Toby lives to this day.
