Uncle Ernie is a daring adventurer and an enchanting storyteller. He travels to far-off places, where he encounters wondrous and sometimes very rare creatures.
Are these places real? Are the creatures he meets real? It's up to you and his nephew Eli to decide.
All Uncle Ernie can say for sure is that when you travel, sometimes you reason and sometimes you run. But you always end up with a story to tell.
"David Woodland’s debut picture book is unmistakably influenced by his award-winning cinematic background. Its visual detail and narrative novelty are rich, and the absurd adventures of its eponymous character (a turtle, by the way) are as audacious and playful as any stories its audience of young children might produce."
