Turtle wants to go on an adventure!

On a boring, ordinary day, Turtle worries his friends are having fun without him.

Squirrel must be happily racing through the forest gathering nuts, Rabbit is probably riding on a giant red tractor and harvesting carrots, and Bee must be exploring dark and creepy caves. But Turtle is all alone.

So Turtle goes on a hunt for his friends. Will he find his adventure?
