Most people believe that snails are slow. But I know one that managed to go so far as around the corner and even further. Despite what its name might suggest, Snail is not an ordinary snail, in fact it is the the fastest snail in his whole vegetable garden. It is also a guy who likes dreaming: for instance he would like to reach the carob tree on the other side of the fence that surrounds the garden. One day he will begin the journey, carrying with itself its good humour, its possibilist spirit, and an unquenchable desire to travel. Pablo Albo’s words follow with empathy the adventures of this happy Snail, while Pablo Auladell’s illustrations fill the vegetable garden with a whole lot of bustling insects and other animals, that transform the garden into the most lively place.
