About the Book

Turq the turtle is insecure about living in two separate habitats. It’s tricky spending part of his time on an island with his dad and the rest of his time inland with his mom. Plus, for a turtle he’s a little freaked out, when it comes to the whole swimming thing.

To conquer his fear of deep water, as well as get answers to life’s difficult questions, Turq goes on a brave journey to visit the Wise Old Frog. Join Turq as he navigates his way through the great outdoors and life as a child with separated parents.

Much like The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, Turq the Turtle tackles the difficult realities of the nature and culture in a touching, memorable, and entertaining way. If you—or someone you know— is part of a separated family, Turq’s story will resonate with you and warm your heart.
