The summer of 1943 is filled with adventure for two ten-year-old boys living at Union Lake. Jimmy spots a huge turtle basking in the sun at the fishing site, and he wants to catch it. He needs the assistance of his best friend, but Roger fears the ferocious bite of the turtle and the thought of losing a finger scares him. Finally Jimmy convinces him to help.

Jimmy and Roger are excited about the opening day of fishing season and Roger bets a quarter with his brother on how many fish they'll catch. He also wants Jimmy's help to hunt for balls at the golf course. Jimmy caddies at the course and he knows they aren't allowed to look for balls, but Roger won't take no for an answer. At summer's end, the boys are catching frogs and they get chased from a canal that is posted, "NO TRESPASSING."

JIMMY and the BIG TURTLE is a fun-filled romp with two boys who are discovering their universe.
