Publisher Description

When young Leonardo da Vinci, a busboy, was asked to make turtle soup, one of the turtles begged for his life! It was Tuttle. Tuttle, tried to convince Leonardo that there is a big world out there, and he could show him all about it, if he would just take a chance.

Through humor and chaos, Leonardo’s inventions come to life, only to find out that everyone one else sees them for something different in the end.

This is the first in a series of children’s fiction books to follow the life of “Tuttle the Turtle”. A turtle who lived so long, he evolved into an independent thinking and speaking mastermind. Follow Tuttle as he influences many famous and sometimes infamous people throughout history.

Originally written as a screenplay, here are some of the KIDS FIRST!® Adult Juror's comments:

"Having a turtle behind his inventions is a humorous and creative way to get kids' attention. The last scene hooks you - when chaos reins and an invention is formed out of the disaster. Another hook - the tension when da Vinci thinks the turtle is getting baked. This is good, clean fun with a fun ending."

Bedtime read

My son and I are enjoying this as his latest bedtime read. I'm diggin' the artistic concepts, and he's lovin' the...well...everything! I hope to see more as a series because my boy will be asking for them soon!
