Chuckle your way through this easy-to-read illustrated chapter book about a snail who leaves his bucket for a bigger world.
Snail is a merry little mollusk in his rusty bucket. Day after day, rain or shine, Snail doesn’t move—and that suits him just fine. But when his bucket is turned over, his life takes a topsy-turvy turn. A journey through the vegetable garden with this adventurous friend Ladybug proves delicious—red, juicy strawberries…YUM!—and dangerous when he comes face to face with a gopher, then a rabbit, and an unfortunate nibble on a hot red pepper…
Can Snail find happiness in this big, new world—or will he wish he never left his bucket?
