But appearances are deceptive: a lot is happening! We meet Turtle and her friends, who are talking about everyday things. But something sinister is brewing over their heads... A story full of comedy and visual tension that skilfully plays with our expectations. And where does this uneasy feeling that something is wrong here come from?
"A wonderful story about friendship and jealousy, loneliness and stubbornness, hope,
disappointment, chance and happiness, in short: our beautiful, sad, funny and infinitely precious lives."
Bettina Hartz, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung
"Honestly, the book is a great blessing!"
Kim Kindermann, Deutschlandfunk Kultur
