"Meet Sheldon, a little turtle trying to figure out not only how he fits in his own shell, but also how he fits in the world. His momma always told Sheldon he was special, so he sets out to take on life's adventures. Along the way he meets Hank, the little cricket with the big sound; together these friends take a journey that will test their courage, strength and leadership, and seal a lifelong friendship. Along the way, Sheldon begins to discover what his momma knew all along. Included within the text are samples of some of the world's greatest musical compositions from such composers as Vivaldi, Bach, Strauss, Brahms, and Rimsky-Korsakov. How do we do that? With a very talented little cricket with an amazing set of wings!
The illustrations were created by award-winning artist, Nick Nebelsky who also cowrote and co-developed the character with his friend since first grade, Dr. Michael Perko. Dr. Perko, a noted child's rights advocate and health professor in North Carolina and Nebelsky have teamed up to tell a whimsical and adorable story for you and your child to read and enjoy.
