A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to reptile rescues.
"This book showcases the all-too-common life of a pet turtle. Red-eared Sliders are very cute when they are small, but they grow big, and can live for decades. Please use this book as a lesson/guide to plan for the long-term future of your pet so they have one family for their whole life."
