Reviews

"A sweet read-aloud for first-time tortoise owners."--Kirkus Review starred review

"The narrator's initial petulance, revealed in the frank narrative and soft pictures done in watercolor and colored pencils, is both entertaining and realistic. Sensitive readers may develop feelings for the innocent tortoise long before she does, which makes for a satisfying ending."--The Horn Book Magazine starred review
