A story of a outgoing snail - literally. :) This snail longs to see the world even though all his friends think he is silly. He advertises for a ride and a whale comes in with the tide, picks him up and takes him to see the world. In the middle of the book the snail learns that even though he is small he can still help in big ways. I love the way all the other snails want what he had even though in the beginning they wanted nothing to do with his dreams.
