A little boy wants a pet, but he lives in the city and his parents say no to every pet he proposes. One day, he sees a turtle with a yellow spot on his shell at the pond in the city. He wants to take the turtle home and his parents agree. But the turtle is not happy at the boy’s house and the boy reluctantly decides to take the turtle back to the pond.

A gentle story about love and sacrifice.

“When I take Melvin outside to meet my friends, he is shy.
He doesn’t even want to meet the other pets.
And while I play catch, he tries to sneak away.”
