I adored this short, charming story of a turtle named Chunky Rice setting off on an adventure to experience the world. He leaves behind his friend Dander, a female deer mouse, who has the most beautifully drawn eyes. Dander misses Chunky terribly and comes up with all kinds of creative ways to tell him she misses him.

Chunky meets a cast of very interesting characters on his adventure across the sea and eventually learns that while he misses Dander and home, he is a turtle and carries his home himself.

Lovely, lovely, lovely book. Makes me want Chunky Rice and Dander stuffed animals to curl up with on the couch.
