On the seashore, a turtle lived with two small companions, a clam and a hermit crab. Though her shell fit a bit loose, it only concerned her when ocean breezes blew. For her birthday celebration she received a grain of sand and a harmonica. She tucked both items in her shell. Later that evening a harsh and jarring wheeze issued from her shell. The turtle was convinced her shell was haunted!
