Dancing Turtle: A Folk Tale from Brazil

Illustrated by: David Boston
Age Level: 6-9

Product Description: Turtle loves to dance and play the flute. But her exuberance puts her at risk when her music attracts the attention of a hunter who brings her home for turtle stew. After she is caught, her only hope for escape is the hunter's children — and her own wit. This folktale, first told by the indigenous people of Brazil, is now told throughout Latin America.
