In Turtles Cannot Climb Trees we meet two new characters, Shelbert the turtle and Terry the three-toed tree toad. Shelbert is a slow moving, good-hearted fellow with not much of a sense of adventure. Terry, however, is all about adventure and fun.
Terry’s invitation to Kicker and Shelbert to join him up the apple tree proves to be quite the challenge for poor Shelbert.
We learn that when friends work together obstacles can be overcome.
