Beatiful game. 

Such a lovely game, it left me with the widest smile, and I even got a little emotional at the end. It made me want to read the novel that inspired it, too. Great work. :)

Short and simple, but still delightful! Thank you for this little gem. I'd like to have more games with these characters, and a larger part for the lovely squirrel!

Get the log out of the way and push the turtle in the water, up north. Then you should be able to cross the river on the turtle's back.
