Torty and the Soldier, by Jennifer Beck
This story is about a man called Stewart who went to the war. He found a tortoise which was injured and he took really good care of her. He took her back to New Zealand.
My favourite characters were the girl that found the tortoise at the beach and the tortoise.
It was sad at the end when Stewart died.
I liked this book because it is actually a true story.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
