Staff Reviews


There's a turtle in a tree! Wait, what? Follow our two canine friends as they argue over what exactly is in the tree, a turtle or a squirrel. Who will be right? Our feisty little friend or our tall curious pal? — From Cailey's Picks

Description


A spare and laugh-out-loud-funny picture book about seeing only half the full picture . . . and admitting when you're not quite all the way right.

A greyhound swears there's a turtle in the tree. A bulldog says it's a squirrel. After all, a turtle in a tree? Who's ever heard of such a thing? But their argument leads to a most surprising discovery . . . that maybe neither one of them is all the way wrong, or all the way right, and friendship is all about listening to someone else's perspective.

About the Author


Neesha Hudson is a freelance author-illustrator living on the coast of Maine. She is delighted to spend most of her days drawing funny little characters and sipping black tea. She is the illustrator of Walk Your Dog (Putnam 2018), but this is her author-illustrator debut. When not illustrating, Neesha enjoys spending time with her husband, their two children, two dogs, and four chickens.

Praise For…


"A funny and insightful look at perspective-taking . . . The soft art—with spare but colorful details and plenty of white space—adds a dreamlike quality." —Kirkus

"Using sparse text, chuckle-worthy soundeffects, and several absolutely wonderful and expertly placed wordless spreads, Hudson is clearly a storyteller and artist who understands intuitively how to use silence and image to amplify laughs." —Booklist

"The watercolor and colored pencil illustrations give the sparse backgrounds and the dogs interesting textures and gradients . . . . Imbedded in this humorous little tale is a lesson about seeing both sides of a situation before deciding who’s right." —BCCB
