Garnett's Grand Getaway

Garnett the tortoise is enjoying living with her mother, Blanche, and her Aunt Josephine in a country of plenty. It is undoubtedly much more enjoyable than the deprivation she experienced before, in the lands where Cold is King.

Life has become rather mundane and slow, however, so Garnett decides it's time to go walk-about, to seek the excitement and adventure that are lacking in her sit-about daily life of plenty.

Although she meets many interesting creatures during her wanderings - and encounters some very dangerous situations at times - she tends to take most of her experiences in her slow stride.

Until, that is, she reaches the enchanted forest ...

It is then that something unusual and enlivening occurs...
