"As so many of our young children struggle with feeling 'different' and many become victims of bullying by their peers, this fun little book (Cornered!) has a reassuring message that each person is OK!"

"This wonderful book (Cornered!) is helpful to any child who feels square in a round world! The questions at the end are a nice starting point for conversations for teachers, friends, and parents."

Meet Sheldon, the Square-Shelled Turtle. He's a pretty normal turtle; he likes sports, music, and eating flies! But the one thing Sheldon doesn't think fair, is that while other turtles have round shells, Sheldon's shell, is, well, square! From the name-calling, the teasing, and the snickering, Sheldon puts up with a lot. Just when he's at his lowest, he does something that SURPRISES EVERYONE! He listens to his heart and THAT makes all the difference!

Sheldon's Adventure is the story of a young turtle that's not happy with his shell. He wants one that's not so itchy and prickly. As he gets older, he starts to notice another interesting thing about his shell - it's beginning to look SQUARE!
Sheldon's Adventure is a cute little rhyming story that will teach your child that it's okay to go on an adventure as long as you remember where you came from. It's a great book for children going of to school for the first time as well as those young kids who question everything. As the story unfolds, Sheldon not only figures out who he is but also learns that that itchiness and scratchiness is because his shell is well, Square! This is the first book of three bullying stories from Intense Media that feature "Sheldon the Square-Shelled Turtle.™"
