About the Book
Inspired by Henry David Thoreau's, Walden, Walter's Pond serves as a primer to a great classic. Walter the turtle lives his life in a terrarium. As he grows up, he encounters the questions and difficulties we all face: How do we live peacably with each other? How much is enough? What does it mean to live with "simplicity"?
