Life in the Slow Lane by Conrad J. Storad
By Conrad J. Storad & illustrated by Nathaniel P. Jensen. In delightful rhymed verse Conrad tells the story of the tortoise and explains how it has adapted to survive in the desert.
Shelly the tortoise and her Grandpa spend the day learning about their cousins (crocodiles), eating their favorite foods (prickly cactus & flowers) and losing races with jackrabbits. Life in the slow lane seems perfect except for those homes and highways moving into the tortoises' habitat.
This is a hardback book.
