This is the story of a tortoise with very big dreams.
I thought that this was a lovely story to read and it has some superb images!
The story is lovely and I really enjoyed it, the different characters were great and I loved the help and assistance that the Tortoise got on their quest. The story was easy to follow and understand too.
It is 3.5 stars from me for this one rounded up to 4 stars for Goodreads and Amazon, I really liked how true to life the images were and they were a lovely addition to the book and really brought the story to life for me. Highly recommended and a really enjoyable story about not giving up on your dreams!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
When I was a child, I had many problems in school. I had a hard time concentrating and committing things to memory and was hyperactive – characteristics that would be recognised today as typical of someone with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
I sat as far back as possible in the class and while the teacher talked and talked about things that I didn’t understand, I drew – though from a distance the teacher may have thought I was making notes on what he was saying. Quite often the teacher noticed and punished me or expelled me from class.
I had a lot of imagination and that helped me to create many different stories.
Later, after studying graphic design and working in advertising, I changed course and decided to dedicate myself to theatre and dance. I studied at the Theatre Institute of Barcelona and soon after I joined The Lindsay Kemp Company, where I worked for many years and in parallel created my own theatre company.
In the 1990’s I left the theatre and immersed myself once again in graphic design, starting to work on 3D computer design programmes.
I am also very interested in the world of meditation and healing and I travelled all over the world, getting to know other cultures and investigating Shamanism, especially in India and Mexico. I conducted many workshops in Spain on how to use silence to encourage creativity.
Today I continue to love the world of drawing and children’s stories and I have many drawings and writings to edit in the future.
Since 2017 I have lived in London and found the peace and tranquillity to work and to make my dreams come true.
