About The Book

Turtle has a sad feeling that won’t go away.

Squirrel is happily gathering nuts, Bee is buzzing from flower to flower, and Rabbit is hopping around the carrot patch, but it doesn’t matter: Turtle just can’t shake his sad feeling!

Even at his dad’s birthday celebration, Turtle is still feeling glum. What will it take to make Turtle feel right again?
