The Adventures of Mao Tse Turtle
by Sarah Seidman




The Adventures of Mao Tse Turtle is a story about the perils and pleasures of freedom. Mao ventures far from home and has neither the speed of the horse nor the strength of the tiger to protect him. Instead, he uses his hard shell and quick mind to escape his many captors and return to those he loves.

With its simple text and scratchboard illustrations, this Chinese tale will engage confident young readers and families of all ages.
