Sometimes Nikolai was uncertain about the right way to act. He knew he wanted to be a good person, but he felt he didn’t always know the right way to go about it. He was certain that if he could just get the answers to three questions, he would always know what to do.

When is the best time to do things?
Who is the most important one?
What is the right thing to do?

Nikolai asks his friends . . . Sonya the Heron, Gogol the Monkey, Pushkin the Dog . . . but their answers don’t seem right. So he decides to ask Leo the Turtle who has lived a long time and will surely know the answers Nikolai seeks.

Leo is digging when Nikolai arrives; the boy does the job for him because the turtle is very old. When a storm blows in, Nikolai finds himself helping an injured panda. And, in the process, he finds the answers he seeks.

Based on a story by Leo Tolstoy, this touching tale speaks to compassion and concern for others. The soft watercolor illustrations are a perfect accompaniment to the story that helps a young boy discover why we are here.

Highly recommended. ( )

Gorgeous artwork illuminates this children's adaptation of Tolstoy's classic story. In truth, I find this version more powerful and more convincing.

That being said...

While this story isn't without decent advice, it's mostly facile. In general, I have three reactions to this story (both this children's version and also Tolstoy's original):

1) I inherently distrust anyone who claims easy and obvious answers to life's challenges and problems.

2) I inherently distrust wise hermits / men living alone on mountain tops. What do they know about living in a society, about being a member of a community of people?

3) My biggest concern is how this could be read:

"The most important person is the one you are with" and "The most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side" could just as easily justify discounting everyone who isn't close to you, who isn't part of your group. It implies that most people in the world aren't important. It could just as easily imply that you shouldn't bother to care about people distant from you, who aren't a part of your immediate life and experience.

"The most important time is now" seems awfully short-sighted. Actions have consequences and we have a responsibility to the future. This piece of wisdom could just a easily justify carelessness and not thinking things through.

I know none of that is the intention of this story: indeed, it wants to teach lessons of compassion and caring. I just worry about how easily it can be read to justify solipsism and short-sightedness. ( )

The author's note explains that he was inspired by Tolstoy's 1903 short story, "The Three Question," which has very different events. ( )

When is the right time? What is the right thing? Who is more important? Throughout his journey, Nikolai struggled with these three questions. He goes to see the old turtle Leo who was sure to know since he has so much experience. When a bad storm comes, Nikolai is tested and finds out he knows the answer to these question, they were inside of him all along! ( )
