VIRTUAL: Neesha Hudson launch event for TURTLE IN A TREE

Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm


A spare and laugh-out-loud-funny picture book about seeing only half the full picture . . . and admitting when you're not quite all the way right.

A greyhound swears there's a turtle in the tree. A bulldog says it's a squirrel. After all, a turtle in a tree? Who's ever heard of such a thing? But their argument leads to a most surprising discovery . . . that maybe neither one of them is all the way wrong, or all the way right, and friendship is all about listening to someone else's perspective.

All copies will be signed by the author and can be personalized - make sure to include your request in the order comments section! And, as a special pre-order bonus, you'll recieve a free print and bookmark, pictured below.

Also see below for some TURTLE IN A TREE themed activity pages to print out and color along with during the event.

Neesha grew up on the coast of Maine where she spent most of her time drawing, painting, and playing in the woods. TURTLE IN A TREE (Dial 2021) is her debut book. She is also the illustrator of WALK YOUR DOG (Putnam 2018), and has illustrated for Parragon, Ladybug, Babybug, and Learning A-Z, among others. When not in the studio, Neesha enjoys spending time outside with her husband, their two children, two dogs, and flock of chickens. You can see more of Neesha’s art at

We expect all participants to maintain an atmosphere of respect and fairness. Anyone who violates this standard of behavior including engaging in any form of harassment, may, at the discretion of the organizers, be immediately removed.
