"Ho hum," yawned Mr.Tortoise. "Winter is here."
"So it is," yawned Mrs. Tortoise. "Come on, Shelley, time for bed."
"But I don't feel sleepy yet," said Shelley.
"Ridiculous!" cried Mr. Tortoise. "All tortoises go to sleep for the winter."
Shelley wants to stay awake instead of hibernating with her parents. "Ridiculous!" her parents say, but she goes out to explore the snow and cold anyway. She soon finds out that her parents and the animals she meets are right. Wheee! She returns home in a wonderful, fun and fast way! And before she could say "Ridiculous!" she was fast asleep.
This is a fun read for this time of year!
