This is a simple story with few words about a boy feeling alone at a new boarding school who receives an unexpected invitation. Deciding to accept, he leaves his school at night and bikes off to a body of water where he meets a large turtle. Riding on the back of the turtle, they come to a cave where there are other animals. Together, they sing and talk and share life together. Afterwards, the boy comes back to school, but a little more confident than before. He even begins talking to the other boys at school and making friends, which is where the book leaves him.

This book is perfect for any age because it depends on both the illustrations and the imagination of the reader. The illustrations are well done, with color choices that well accent the mood of the piece. The story itself doesn’t necessarily present an ethical moral for children to learn from, yet there is a lesson in the book. A reminder to let one’s imagination run free, and use it to help you learn. A great book for storytime. Recommend. Cory Brookins, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
