Avon the snail has never had an adventure. And adventure, he has heard, is the key to a happy life. So with his new friend Edward the ant, Avon sets out on a journey to find the excitement his life has been missing.
The travelers meet all manner of wise, weird, and intriguing creatures–including a dragon!–and it’s not long before their adventures begin.
In the tradition of such classics as The Little Prince, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and Winnie-the-Pooh, this completely original story–a modern fable for our time–brims with wit, wisdom, and profound insights about the meaning of things . . . great and small.
