About the Author
Richard Buckley is a much-traveled English writer of both prose and poetry. He has lived in New York, Paris, and London, but his present home is in Cheltenham, England, where he has lived for the past thirty years, bringing up two sons with his wife (and muse) Elfie. His books for children include The Dutiful Penguin, The Foolish Tortoise (with Eric Carle), The Greedy Python (with Eric Carle), and The Bird Who Couldn\'t Fly (with Alex Williams).
The foolish tortoise is tired of being so slow. He decides that the easiest way for him to move faster is to get out of his heavy shell. The only problem is, once he leaves his home, he\'s too scared to walk anywhere! This silly tortoise learns the hard way that there\'s no place like home.
Children and adults alike will enjoy this classic tale of self-discovery, whimsically illustrated by Eric Carle. This package includes a paperback book along with a CD of the story being read aloud.
