Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nikolai seeks counsel from a wise old turtle in a beautifully illustrated story inspired by Tolstoy.

Synopsis:

Nikolai wants to be the best person he can be, so he asks three questions that will give him the answers. But when he helps a stranger, he realizes what the truth really is. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

With his stunning watercolors — and text that resounds with universal truths, award-winning artist Jon J Muth has transformed a story by Tolstoy into a timeless fable for young readers.

What is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do? Nikolai knows that he wants to be the best person he can be, but often he is unsure if he is doing the right thing. So he goes to ask Leo, the wise turtle. When he arrives, the turtle is struggling to dig in his garden, and Nikolai rushes to help him. As he finishes work, a violent storm rolls in. Nikolai runs for Leo's cottage, but on his way, he hears cries for help from an injured panda. Nikolai brings her in from the cold, and then rushes back outside to rescue her baby too.

The Three Questions is an excellent story with beautiful illustrations by a classic Russian author. But the story may be a little difficult to comprehend for children age 5 and under.
