Who Wants a Tortoise?
by Dave Keane

When the spunky, loveable narrator receives a tortoise for her birthday, instead of the cuddly puppy she’s longed for her entire life, she’s more than a little disappointed. But when her pet goes missing, all she wants is to be reunited with her new best friend.
