Giant Turtle's Long Nap

RETOLD BY DANA GREEN

Once, a giant turtle took a thousand-year nap. Unknown to him, a mountain was formed on his shell, where animals and people made their homes there. Awakened by the noise and pain from the fires built on his back, he crawled toward the sea to cool off. When he saw the dwellers on his back, he did not want to hurt them; so he slept another thousand years until he could no longer endure the pain. Using his ancient wisdom, he devised a plan to save the day for everyone.
