Many years ago on the island of Tigo Tigo, there lived a turtle named Harold who dreamt of learning to sing like the birds. All the other turtles on the island discouraged him from trying to sing, telling him that turtles just couldn’t sing. But Harold was convinced that he could learn to sing and even the strange grunts that he was able to make did not discourage this melodious turtle. One lucky day, Harold met Melanie, the meadowlark, in the forest. Did she teach him to sing? Yes, she did. After that, Harold taught all the other turtles on the island and they taught their children. Even today, on the island of Tigo Tigo, on a hot summer evening you can hear the little turtles singing, all thanks to the determination of Harold, the very first singing turtle.
