Thyra Heder, Alfie

Nia loves Alfie, her pet turtle. But he's not very soft, he doesn't do tricks, and he's pretty quiet. Sometimes she forgets he's even there--until the night before Nia's seventh birthday, when Alfie disappears. Then, in an innovative switch in point of view, we hear Alfie's side of the story. He didn't leave Nia--he's actually searching for the perfect birthday present for his dear friend. Can he find a gift and make it back in time for the big birthday party?

Thyra Heder is the author of Fraidyzoo and The Bear Report. She is also an illustrator and storyboard artist for film and advertising. She lives in Brooklyn.
