A tortoise? A tortoise? But this book is about a toytoise. A very rude toytoise in fact. A toytoise who lived his life in a rush with no consideration for the other animals in the forest. A toytoise who caused trouble wherever he went. A toytoise who never stopped. That is, until one day he needed some help, and was taught a valuable lesson in life by the kind and gentle Mr. Bear. Join Mrs. Rabbit, Mrs. Blue Bird, Mrs. Spider and Mrs. Squirrel in a laugh out loud story that adults and children alike will want to read again and again.
The story is told in the most exquisite rhyming verse. It flows beautifully and it demands to be read aloud to a group of children. The regular repetitions beg to be shouted out by a classroom full of shining, laughing faces. And Andy Gray's illustrations complement the story perfectly as they switch from blissful peace to chaotic activity with the turn of a page. It's fun - glorious fun.... - The Bookbag 5/5
An absolutely adorable and quirky story... with its meaningful message and dazzling illustrations, artfully created by Andy Gray, this story is a must read for every child and will instill the importance of proper behavior while being fully entertained and delighted at the same time.
