About Old Turtle

The children’s book: Old Turtle and the Broken Truth was written by author Douglas Wood as a sequel to his first book, Old Turtle, which was hailed as an "instant classic.”

In Old Turtle and the Broken Truth, a truth falls like a star from the sky and breaks into two pieces. When the villagers discover only half of the truth, it causes so many problems that Little One, a brave young girl, decides to search for the missing half. With the help of Old Turtle, and many animal friends, Little One is able to mend the broken truth and make it whole again — “you are loved…and so are they” — creating a better world for everyone.

Old Turtle and the Broken Truth is powerful allegory about accepting and welcoming differences, which will resonate with children and adults alike.
