But Pogo also had a problem. Because he was a turtle, he couldn't do most of the fun and exciting things he saw those lucky boys doing who visited his pond. And this made Pogo very angry.
Angry, that is, until he discovered why he was made like he was. Then, being a turtle didn't seem so bad.
In fact, it was kind of special.
The Impatient Turtle is the fifth in Janette Oke's series of charming animal creations.
