“There once was a boy named Nikolai who sometimes felt uncertain about the right way to act.” He has three questions he wants answering. “When is the best time to do things?… Who is the most important one?… What is the right thing to do?…”. His friends the heron, monkey and dog give differing advice that just didn’t seem right. He asks the old turtle, Leo, the three questions. Dramatic events unfold that answer the questions for Nikolai. “Remember, then that there is only one important time, and that time is now. The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side. This is why we are here.” Muth discusses Tolstoy’s original three questions in the endnote.
