This is Turtle.

This is Tortoise.

As little hatchlings, Turtle and Tortoise decided that they could never, ever be friends.

Why?

Because they are so different.

But maybe they've got it all wrong.

A hilarious and clever story about an unlikely friendship between two stubborn creatures, Turtle and Tortoise Are Not Friends proves that you can't always judge someone by their shell.

Turtle and Tortoise Are Not Friends is a cute children's book that kids will like simply for the fact that it's about turtles. The turtle and the tortoise are born around the same time in a pen but determine they can't be friends because they are different animals. So, they go about their lives on separate ends of the pen, trying to ignore each other.
Until they can't anymore because something happens and they realize they need each other's help.

The story is told in simple terms with certain exceptions. It relies a lot on the reader or listener to understand the passage of time and just how long years are in order to really be funny. Kids young enough to enjoy the book would have a hard time with that.
The images also lack vibrancy. I wish there'd been more color to keep a kid entranced.
But it's short enough that they won't get bored before the end. Stories about animals are always a hit and this one is no different.

Final Verdict:
A cute story of what it takes to become friends, told in an engaging style that's sure to entertain little ones.
