This is a fun and somewhat wacky story of Sunny Boy, a tortoise who outlives a horticulurist, a stamp collector, and a Latin scholar until finally he comes to live with a daredevil who takes Sunny Boy along when he goes over Niagara Falls. There is an author note at the end explaining that there really was a tortoise named Sunny Boy who went over Niagara Falls in a barrel with his owner. Just based on the facts given in the author note, I think the story of the real Sunny Boy might be even This is a fun and somewhat wacky story of Sunny Boy, a tortoise who outlives a horticulurist, a stamp collector, and a Latin scholar until finally he comes to live with a daredevil who takes Sunny Boy along when he goes over Niagara Falls.
Just based on the facts given in the author note, I think the story of the real Sunny Boy might be even more interesting than this fictionalized version. Aug 12, Matthew rated it it was amazing. This was such a fun story, and to find out that it was based on an actual turtle, I was completely taken with this book. Easily one of the most unforeseeable plots for a book about a turtle that I've ever encountered. Well done. Oct 10, Mary Zychowicz rated it it was amazing. Very funny story inspired by a true story of George Stakathis who went over Niagra Falls in a barrell.

Sunny Boy has a lovely life, basking in gardens and learning Latin, until Biff adopts him and decides to take him over Niagara Falls. Sunny Boy survives the journey, learns to love a bit of adventure and ends up being cared for by the scholarly girl of his dreams. This lovely and sweet story Sunny Boy the Tortoise is captured from his warm sunny home and delivered to New York City. This lovely and sweet story is a nice compliment to Van Allsburg's most excellent Queen of the Falls. Recommended for K - grade 3. I used this as part of a Candace Fleming author study. Then I read the book, encouraging students to consider who made the best owner for Sunny Boy.
We reflected on the author's note, which explains the history of Sunny Boy a real tortoise! Several students made connections to Van Allsburg's Queen of the Falls , which was especially exciting because this is not a book I had read to them. And finally, every single class I read this to makes the same connection that I do: the explorer who captures Sunny Boy on the second page of the story reminds us of Curious George 's Man with the Big Yellow Hat. A lovely way to start a wonderful story. Jan 16, babyhippoface rated it liked it Shelves: kids-picture-books.
