The Story

A Normal Turtle is the story of a young fox kit who, as an infant, gets himself stuck in a turtle shell. As a result, his whole life he's raised as a turtle; even though he knows deep inside that he is not who he appears to be on the outside. Despite everyone in his life telling him who he is and how he should act, our little fox must find the courage to come out of his shell...

A story of acceptance, strength, bravery, and love, A Normal Turtle is designed to help LGBTQ children to have pride in being who they are; as well as to teach all children to empathize with those who are unlike themselves. With its positive message of unconditional love, written in rhyme and featuring brightly colored, highly polished illustrations by the author, this book is sure to become an instant classic in your home!

I know you can’t live on hope alone; but without hope, life is not worth living.
So you, and you, and you: you got to give them hope.
You got to give them hope.
