When it was first published a decade ago, Old Turtle was hailed as a uniquely satisfying, beautifully imagined fable about ecology, peace, and the interconnectedness of all beings. Its appeal continues to this day for both children and adults. Cheng-Khee Chee's evocative watercolors, blending Eastern and Western traditions, perfectly accompany Douglas Wood's simple and moving text.
Winner of the American Booksellers Association Book of the Year and the International Reading Association's Children's Book Award, Old Turtle is a modern classic that lovingly promotes peace, environmental awareness, and spirituality.
