A turtle's life is a tough one... tougher than a slug's? Tougher than a slug's that runs the risk of ending up in an Elias Zapple stew? It is tough none the less as a turtle is on its own from the beginning. Hatching from its shell, breaking through then making its way to the water during which time a hungry hawk could come swooping down to snatch it up for breakfast. The little turtle then also has to find its own food! Poor little mite. Reminds me of when I was born and arose out of a tulip. Nobody helped me either. Therefore I can thoroughly recommend this book as it's tender, (much like the slugs in my slug stew), informative and makes for excellent bedtime reading.
Choosing books worthy enough to be read and reviewed by Elias Zapple.
