Snail is on a journey, but-as always-it's taking him a long time. Along the way he encounters other creatures that seem to be heading the same way as him, and all of them are in a hurry. "But it's hard to hurry when you're a snail," Snail laments. At last Snail finds himself picked up gently by Noah, who reassures him that the ark wouldn't have left without him. Children will surely enjoy this delightfully playful story and its heartwarming surprise ending. The book also includes a fold-out poster of the ark with two snails to find among the animals.
