Animal Stories 1: The Tortoise’s Gift

By (author) Lari Don; Illustrated by Melanie Williamson

The animals agree to send a messenger to the wise mountain to find out the name of the tree and bring it back. One by one, the animals set out, but remembering the name is not as easy as they had imagined…
