Summary

A turtle reluctantly moves from his favourite spot just in time to avoid a rock that falls from the sky, which then becomes a place of contemplation.

Look up! From the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the Hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.
Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it...
A hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there's something off somewhere, but you just can't put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit and existential silliness, celebrated picture-book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.

Book of the week

A turtle reluctantly moves from his favourite spot just in time to avoid a rock that falls from the sky, which then becomes a place of contemplation.


A good story with understated humour that is clever and works really well. A simple layout lets the fantastic illustrations shine through. It's subtle, so may go over the heads of some but well worth stocking, a great read.
