It' s Mr. Tortoise' s birthday, and he can' t wait to eat cake with his friends. But there' s a hitch! Mr. Tortoise can' t remember how old he is, so his friends don' t know how many candles to put on the cake. And they won' t stop (or slice) until they figure out the mystery. Could Mr. Tortoise be as many years old as there are sections on his shell? He' s twice as big as the smaller tortoise . . . so is he twice as old? After the partygoers work through a variety of possibilities, they find their way to the answer with a simple bit of addition. With text from I Don' t Want to Be a Frog author Dev Petty and hilarious graphic novel-style illustrations from Ruth Chan, How Old Is Mr. Tortoise? will have readers guessing the answer from beginning to end.
