Publisher's Summary

A Turtle's Magical Adventure is a charming, heart-warming story of a turtle who doesn't like his shell because it makes him too slow. Tad asks other slow animals if they also mind being slow. Each one gives an answer that helps Tad feel better, but still, he wants to be fast. He happens upon a snake who tells him there is a wizard that can make him fast. He goes on an adventure into The Magical Timberwood Forest to meet the wizard and hopefully get his wish fulfilled. He encounters delightful, magical creatures along the way, but also meets with danger and choices.

Will Tad get his wish, or will the wizard turn him into turtle soup?

    "wonderful tale. :)"

    what a wonderful tale for adults and kids alike. I really enjoyed this because of the underlying story, of Tad and his journey to accept who he was and not what he wanted to be.
    I really was transported back to being 6 years old and listening to the old cassette tapes as a kid :) thank you very much for this, I highly recommend it for every age.

    Story
    "Great lesson about Acceptance"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sure. A Turtle's Magical Adventure is about a turtle who thinks he would be happier if he could only...go faster, remove his shell,....Only to discover he can be happy knowing he is exactly who "the creator' intended and that makes him perfect.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Wanda Luthman? Why or why not?

    Sure. Ms. Luthman tells a nice story.


    Have you listened to any of Mercedes Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first story narrated by Ms Phillips. I thought she did a nice job. No over the top voices, just sweet storytelling. Like our local librarian

    I received a free copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "A Turtle's Magical Adventure"

    I listened to this with my daughter and she totally loved it!!!! Great narration voices, and fun characters.

    My daughter had 2 questions though, where were Tads parents ? And did he not get in more trouble missing so much school?

    Story
    "Cute story about accepting ourselves"
    What did you love best about A Turtle's Magical Adventure?

    The message is a good one: everyone is different for a reason. We are made for different purposes and should celebrate those differences. Have confidence in who you are and don't let the meanness of others bother you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Imagery of the story; that all children experience the desire to be different and we waste a lot of time searching for a way to change ourselves. There is always a cost for wanting to change who you are. Also has a great message of how to be a good friend to someone who is struggling.


    What three words best describe Mercedes Phillips’s voice?

    Gentle, expressive, enunciated


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Be happy being a turtle, or whatever you are!


    Any additional comments?

    Age appropriate help: talks about teachers and students being mean, punishment of the wizard is death (boiling) which doesn't take place. Good lesson on being a friend, not making fun of others, finding the positive

    "Such a Cute Story With a Great Message"

    "A Turtle's Magical Adventure" was too cute. I thought the story was exactly appropriate for the age group. There was a great message about acceptance and the characters were adorable.

    It was a little Wizard of Oz-y and a little Adam and Eve-ish and it worked. With that said, there was no pretense at all. This audiobook was just plain adorable. I think Wanda Luthman has a knack for writing children's stories. My youngest grand who's 7 would love this one.

    Mercedes Phillips' narration was cute. She was able to get down on a kid's level of speaking. She also has a good tone in her voice. The audio quality was lacking only slightly but what kid's going to notice that. A non-issue.

    "I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com."
