A basic exploration of the appearance, behavior, and habitat of tortoises, the slow moving shelled reptiles. Also included is a retelling of Aesop's famous fable about the tortoise and the hare. From humpbacked camels to drumming woodpeckers, and from fast-flying hummingbirds to slow-moving tortoises, the world of animals is wonderfully diverse. This popular and newly expanded series continues traveling the planet to study these and other fascinating animals. Beautiful photos are paired with accessible text to examine the featured creature's appearance, habitat, behaviors, and life cycle. Each book also presents a folk story that people have used to help explain the animal's appearance or behavior.
