Today Turtle is another year older. This isn't something that Turtle likes to shout about; not that he ever really shouts anyway.
He's spent much of the day hiding in amongst some rather voluptuous cushions, trying not to think about the whole birthday situation.
But, Turtle's friends see things differently and decided that they would pop round to Turtle's house, drop off their gifts and most importantly stick the kettle on.
That'll be sure to cheer Turtle up.
