Product Description

Product Description

Sammie Snail has a problem - his Shell. It's too heavy, too hot and not that much fun. Especially during a day in the sun.
Sammie decides he has had enough. He wants out. Out of the confinements of his shell, to become a free snail!
But little does he know how wrong he would turn out to be...

Join Sammie and his friends on a wild adventure that will teach you that sometimes, even the things we don't really appreciate and take for granted, possess the greatest value!

This exceptional book for young children is illustrated with beautiful, adorable images and written with love and care that is felt throughout the story.
Hop on board! Your children (and you) will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely image story 16 Dec 2013

Having a child who is image conscious, she didn't see this coming at all. Perfect. She's 9, and I just got her to read this to her younger sister. Was a brilliant story and surprise for her, she thought it was just about a race. Well done on the misdirection. :) xx

This is an adorable little eBook! My son and daughter absolutely love it.
It has charming illustrations, very cute rhymes and an important moral lesson - all that a children's book needs.
Perfect choice for small children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Tale of the Snail 19 Nov 2013

Beautifully illustrated book with a fun story line that also teaches a great lesson.
In this day and age, children are often overwhelmed by peer pressure.
Sammie teaches children (and adults) that often what we think we may want- isn't the best choice.
I won't spoil the story ending for you but I will say as I read the story (and watched my granddaughter read it later) there is a certain point in the story where you suck in your breath a bit. At this point, it all becomes clear to you (and to Sammie) why things are the way they are - even if he (and you) didn't see it before.
It also becomes clear that sometimes the things we think need changing - really are perfect the way they are.
I bought this book for my granddaughter and loved. loved. loved the colors and how much time was obviously put into this story. Sammie captures your heart and I hope to see him in other adventures in the near future.
I know we'll be reading this story over and over.
5.0 out of 5 stars why does a snail have a shell ? 19 Mar 2014

I loved this book on the premise of a child being intrigued by a snail not liking it's shell and the parent being asked to 'read it to me again.' It's an informative little story about slimmy snails that appeals to a child's inquiring mind. Darling story.

I love the fact they offer free books and lots of them are pretty good, otherwise kindle books are over priced in my opinion.
