The Turtle and the Moon was a beautifully illustrated picture book. It told the tale of a little turtle, who grew lonely in his everyday activities. He did not have a friend to keep him company and entertain him. This was the case until one night he awoke to find his new playmate. They did tricks in the water together, until the morning came. Every night the turtle would stay up for his friend to awaken and play. This book is about finding friends in the most peculiar places.

Awww such a beautiful yet melancholic story! It seems like a lonely life for the turtle, but i find it a charming story in a way. That is love. The turtle always waiting for it's friend, the moon each night.
