Tommy Tortoise Goes on a Trip
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Tommy the tortoise went on a trip. He left home on a Tuesday. Tommy lived in a trailer with his owners, Theresa and Todd Tucker. Tommy was a sulcata land tortoise. Tommy was a Christmas present for Theresa. Tommy normally lived inside, but Theresa gave him regular breaks in a pen in the yard beside their trailer. The pen was made of cinder blocks.
 
2     Tommy got travel fever, and he knocked over some of the cinder blocks in order to get out. When Theresa went outside to bring in Tommy, Tommy was nowhere to be found. Theresa was frantic.
 
3     Tommy decided it was time to travel. He took off toward the north. Tommy saw great mountains to the north. He had never been to the mountains. He thought it would be a perfect place for a traveling tortoise, so Tommy ambled off on his first adventure.
