Yvette Bezuidenhout:
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 freediver, the marine environment has always been very important to her. By writing this book, she hopes to educate Indonesian children,and children worldwide, about why we should stop using plastic.
