Written in verse, this is the story of a turtle who is hiding because of the fear he feels inside. He is frightened of almost everything in life; scared all the time. His only friend is a little mouse who visits him everyday and gives him some wise advice that helps him find faith, meaning in life, and the courage to live fully. Well-written and beautifully illustrated by the author, this book is a must read for a timid child or anyone who enjoys a meaningful story with lots of heart.
