Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wood's celebrated, bestselling fable of ecology and spirituality, reissued in March 2007 with a beautiful new jacket design.

Long ago, the animals, rocks, waters, and trees of the earth began an argument about God. Is He a wind who is never still? Is He a rock that never moves? Is He high above or here among us?

Venerable Old Turtle quitely answered: God is all of these things.

In 1992, Old Turtle burst upon the publishing world as a uniquely satisfying fable about ecology, peace, and the interconnectedness of all beigns. Few books can match the understated, universal power of its hopeful message. The beautiful repackaging Scholastic is releasing in March 2007 makes it the perfect gift book.

Synopsis:

This enchanting fable promotes a deeper understanding of the Earth and the relationships between all the beings who inhabit it. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to environmental healing and international understanding projects. Watercolor illustrations. ABBY Award winner.

About the Author

Music, books, and nature are three prominent themes in Woods life. Though he started as a poor reader in elementary school, his second grade teacher, Miss Little, instilled in him a life-long love of books and reading. Raised in a family of musicians, Doug grew up playing violin and piano. In teaching himself to play guitar and banjo, and write songs, he found his own personal form of musical expression.

One of the North Countrys most experienced wilderness experts, Douglas Wood makes his home by the Mississippi River in rural Minnesota.

Beautifully illustrated with a tender, thoughtful, moving story. I think this story is as much for adults as it is for children.
