the children really enjoyed the s rhyming story of a tortoise and his new best friend.

they thought the pictures were wonderful and glad that they are best friends.


Jnr book worms book review.

a charming rhyming text that shows the importance of friendship and subtly showing the despair caused by bullying.

it takes us on the journey of finding friendship to working hard to achieve our goals

the bright fun animated illustrations really bring the story to life.

it is fun to read and created wonderful opportunities to discuss, loyalty, friendship, working together and bullying.
