Tortoises may be slow, but they are steady and never give up! Who can win against that?
This tortoise is a finger puppet, but it is also a very cute decorative piece. He may be small, but he adds a lot of fun to wherever he is found, like on the edge of an otherwise austere bookshelf.
The hare in the photo above is a good friend of the tortoise. They come as a set in A Hasty Hare & A Tardy Tortoise.
