AN AMERICAN STORYTELLER
MEMOIRS OF A TORTOISE
Meet Oliver, the newest friend to spring from Devin's imagination. But Memoirs of a Tortoise is a departure for Devin -- and for his readers. Spending his days in a beautiful garden with his "pet" Ike, life is lovely for Oliver. But of course, people don't live as long as tortoises. And when Ike disappears, Oliver's garden becomes a place of sadness and confusion. Perhaps a journey to see Oliver's 137-year old mother will help him sort through one of life's toughest yet most natural struggles. By flipping the usual story on its side, Memoirs of a Tortoise walks a loving and warm path through loss and love. The art is once again provided by the superb Tim Bowers.
