Meet Sheldon, the turtle with a four-cornered shell. He's a pretty normal turtle; he likes sports, music, and eating flies! But the one thing Sheldon doesn't think fair, is that while other turtles have round shells, Sheldon's shell, is, well, square! Dr. Mike Perko who is an Associate Professor at the Univeristy of North Carolina approached Nick Nebelsky (illustrator and co-producer) with this idea of a turtle who got teased a lot at school. It's not what's on the outside that matters most, but what's on the inside. It's a warm, light-hearted book that illustrates how to overcome bullying by being yourself. Mike's words will resonate with anyone who has been bullied and will make your child fall in love with Sheldon!
