Synopsis

Look up! From the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the Hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.

Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it...

A hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there's something off somewhere, but you just can't put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit and existential silliness, celebrated picture-book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.

Reviews

Emma

A cast of three contemplate and deliberate the significance of a large rock in this zen-like conversation-based tale.


An unexpected other worldly cameo brings an unexpected twist to this delightfully dark observational comedy.


An absolute treat to read aloud, perfect for sharing, 1-2-1 or with a small group.

Suggested Reading Age 5+
