About the Book:
Nia loves Alfie, her pet turtle. But he’s not very soft, and he doesn’t do tricks, and he’s pretty quiet. Sometimes she forgets he’s even there!
As for Alfie, he loves Nia, too. Sure she’s a little rough, and she moves too fast, but she also puts food in his tank, dances with him, and draws him pictures. Nia’s birthday is coming up, and Alfie wants to find her the perfect present. So he leaves his tank and begins his search. Under the radiator and the couch, down the stairs and into a pond, Alfie travels the house and yard. Can he find a gift and make it back in time for the big birthday party?
From the author-illustrator of Fraidyzoo and The Bear Report comes a warm and funny picture book ode to friendship, even when the friends see the relationship—and the world—very differently.
