Product Description

One day Turtle saw a banana tree floating down the river. She wanted to plant it in her garden but it was too heavy to pull out of the water. So she asked Monkey to help her. But the monkey would only help if he could have his share. Turtle agreed, but Monkey wanted his share now. He didn't want to wait for the tree to grow.

Author Bio

Joanna C. Galdone is the author of many children’s books, including The Tailypo: A Ghost Story, and the daughter of acclaimed author and illustrator Paul Galdone.
 

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

Editorial Reviews

"This Philippine tale is told in a direct style which effectively allows Paul Galdone's illustrations to convey the emotional strife between the two characters." NATE-Language Arts
