Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Children will immediately get the joke that despite the turtle’s impressions, he never leaves the yard. The nice twist is that he is not disappointed with his adventure. . . . Humorous, warm, and ultimately reassuring.” —
Inspired by the books Emma reads to him of faraway places, Turtle digs a hole and escapes from his backyard pen. On his journey, Turtle thinks he may have spotted a tiger in India, a kangaroo in Australia, and an elephant in Africa. But has he? Readers will know better. . . .School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Inspired by the stories Emma reads to him, Turtle digs out of his pen and sets off to see faraway places. The backyard grass is longer than his legs so he thinks he must be in the jungle. He spies a tree stump and believes it’s an elephant’s leg. Just when he begins to worry that he’s lost, Emma rescues him—and he discovers that he never left home. Undeterred, Turtle is grateful to “have the whole world here in my backyard,” and plans to escape again tomorrow, this time to China.
