Tested under SheepShaver & works well, as with BII however, could run good, but could crash after a while. Also tested with Mini vMac II, but crash...

Blue Tortoise is untested on newer Classic Mac OS versions. Can someone check this on Mac OS 9? And can some check the other titles in the series under SheepShaver and Basilisk II: Red Rhino, Green Bear, and Yellow Hippo. Of course, can you also check Blue Tortoise to see if it will work on both emulators? Let me know the results! Thanks!

Some additional information from the Read Me files from all the uploaded Little Giants Book series disc images should be added into the descriptions on the Blue Tortoise (the page where I posted this comment), Red Rhino, Green Bear, and Yellow Hippo pages.
