Description


While fighting for England in World War I, Henry Friston sees extraordinary sights--foreign lands and fighting armies and oceans that stretch to the horizon. But it's while under fire in the trenches at Gallipoli that he sees the most extraordinary sight of all: a tortoise. Inspired, he discovers the strength he needs to survive, and, together, he and his tortoise escape the battle. So begins the friendship of a lifetime.

Based on true events and with charming illustrations, The Tortoise and the Soldier is an amazing story of war, courage, and friendship by Michael Foreman.
