Book Review


The foolish tortoise is tired of going so slow. He hypothesizes that his heavy shell is what holds him back, so he consequently decides to crawl out and leave it behind. Although he now can indeed move much faster, he also encounters many dangers that his shell previously protected him from. Finding his own shell in the end of his adventure is a welcome sight to Tortoise, and he gladly crawls back in and bids the world good night.
