The Turtle At The Bottom Of The Garden

Authored by Jer White
Illustrated by Adam Howie

A funny, loopy story for kids about a boy jumping from turtle to turtle. He doesn't care that it’s turtles all the way down…

Alex v1.1 Smith has just moved to a nice new house in the country – but last night he thought he saw some giant turtles half-buried in the garden.

Home alone the next morning, Alex plans to go exploring. On his way to find The Turtle at the Bottom of the Garden, he meets all sorts of fantastical animals like:

  • Curious Crows, Ghost Crabs, Hover Rats, Octopus Spam, and of course TALKING TURTLES!

Alex has his next-gen phone to help him, and he messages his twin sister Avalon v33 Smith – she’s in the kitchen, unpacking the moving-in boxes and talking to House: the twin’s newly booted AI babysitter.

How many turtles will Alex discover on his journey?

And will he find TEGGY: the Turtle at the Bottom of the Garden?
