A Turtle’s Guide to Introversion

Ton Mak


A Turtle’s Guide to Introversion is a delightful illustrated gift book that celebrates the wonderful qualities of introverts through the everyday adventures of a turtle.

Being an introvert comes with numerous advantages and the occasional woe, and no animal knows that better than the humble turtle hiding in its shell. This book celebrates introverts and their many wonderful, often-underrated qualities.

The story is narrated by a lovable turtle who finds socializing tiring, prefers alone time, and recharges through solitude.
Each spread features 2-color illustrations of Turtle navigating life alongside a cast of pudgy animal friends. Self-identified introverts, art and comics enthusiasts will love the spare yet resonant text, adorable narrator, and delightful illustrations. This uplifting novelty book is a cute collectible or a sweet anytime gift for a friend.

• People who like turtles.
• Fans of quirky comics in the style of Gemma Correll, Jomny Sun, and Yumi Sakugawa.
