Appearing as the third major monotone illustration plate within Lathrop's The Fairy Circus (1931), this image is

associated with the following text:


They stood on round apples that rolled, a much more difficult feat for them

than it is for an elephant to crowd all four feet on a ball. An elephant can

hump his back until his stomach wrinkles and his feet are bunched close

together. But the turtles' shells wouldn't bend in the middle; they wouldn't

bend at all.
