With his stunning watercolors and a text that resounds with universal truths, award-winning artist Jon J. Muth has transformed a story by Tolstoy into a timeless fable for young readers.
Nikolai is a boy who believes that if he can find the answers to his three questions, he will always know how to be a good person. His friends--a heron, a monkey, and a dog--try to help, but to no avail, so he asks Leo, the wise old turtle. "When is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do?" Leo doesn't answer directly, but by the end of Nikolai's visit, the boy has discovered the answers for himself.
