Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Reflect: Oxford Level 19: The Turtle's Wish
Paulina has loved living in Beijing ever since her family moved from England five years ago. But when Xia the box turtle finds Paulina in her favourite city park, she's feeling lost: uncertain about how to improve her written Chinese, confused about why no-one at school will talk to her and unsure how to go about finding new friends. Then, as Xia's arrival begins to answer some of her questions, it also brings a new mystery - the mystery of Weiting's grandfather and
the turtle's wish.
