Itís about a boy who is kind to a turtle and makes friends with it. The turtle promises to repay the boy for his kindness. When the boy falls down in the river, the turtle went to help the boy to escape from the river. The boy was so happy and told his mother that he fell down in the river and the turtle helped him.

I like this book because it tells a nice story with a happy ending. The pictures are very colourful and interesting. I think everyone, young and old would like this story because it teaches us to be kind.
