Rodney spends most of his days looking up. Imagining, for hours, what a life high among the treetops would be like and how it would feel to be so … tall.
Rodney is a small tortoise with a BIG dream. All he wants is to be larger. Then one day, Rodney’s dream comes true – or does it? It’s all a matter of perspective!
An encouraging story celebrating individual strengths and talents regardless of size. Perfect for young readers about to embark on new challenges or change. Great to gift before the much anticipated first day of school.
