Oliver the tortoise has had his human, Ike, for a very, very long time now. In fact, they're the same age--80 years old--and practically twins.

But when Ike stops visiting the garden, Oliver wonders why his pet has left him so soon. So he makes the long journey to see his mother ten gardens away--she will certainly have the answer. This tender story from the author and illustrator that brought us Memoirs of a Goldfish reminds us to cherish all the days we have with our pets and loved ones.

If the Tennessee legislature approved the 19th amendment it would be ratified, giving all American women the right to vote.

The Voice That Won the Vote is the story of Febb, her son Harry, and the letter than gave all American women a voice.
