Inspired by the stories Emma reads to him, Turtle digs out of his pen and sets off to see faraway places. The backyard grass is longer than his legs so he thinks he must be in the jungle. He spies a tree stump and believes it’s an elephant’s leg. Just when he begins to worry that he’s lost, Emma rescues him and he discovers that he never left home. Undeterred, Turtle is grateful to have the whole world here in my backyard,” and plans to escape again tomorrow, this time to China.

About the Author:

Eve Bunting is the author of the Caldecott-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz. Among her many other titles are Hey Diddle Diddle, Will It Be a Baby Brother?, Mous

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—A girl reads about faraway lands to her pet turtle. The turtle then decides to do a bit of exploring, digging a hole to get under the wire of his pen. He makes immediate discoveries, such as, "My legs are short and the grass is long. I think this must be the jungle." He sees a tree stump and thinks it must be an elephant leg in Africa. He mistakes a frog at first for a kangaroo leaping in Australia, and fears that the cat from next door is an Indian tiger. Just when the turtle begins to worry that he might be lost, Emma finds him and takes him home. Children will immediately get the joke that despite the turtle's impressions, he never leaves the yard. The nice twist is that he is not disappointed with his adventure. He reflects, "It is exciting to have the whole world here in my backyard." The whimsical watercolor illustrations match the tone of the story well. The turtle's face shows many emotions as he travels and discovers. The pictures are drawn on scale with the small creature himself, echoing a childlike perspective and interpretation of size in a personal world. Humorous, warm, and ultimately reassuring, this story will be appreciated by individual readers but it's also a good choice for group read-alouds.—Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
