Tudley, a pond-living painted turtle, adopts other animals’ behaviors—simply because he doesn’t know he can’t! He flies like a bird, sings like a katydid, hops like a frog, and glows like a firefly. All the while, he uses his special behaviors to help other animals. But will Tudley’s new friends help him when he needs help? The “For Creative Minds” education section includes fun facts about painted turtles, rubythroated hummingbirds, fireflies, leopard frogs, and true katydids. It also contains a “Make a Hopping Tudley” craft, a recipe for hummingbird sugar water, a “Creative Sparks” section, and a “Food for Thought” section.
