The Story of a Snail Who Discovered the Importance of Being Slow
Luis Sepúlveda, illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura
In Dandelion Land, a young snail can’t stop asking his friends awkward questions, such as: why are we so slow – and why can’t we all have our own names? When he is finally banished from the snail community because of this, he is forced to travel the world alone. As he explores in his oh-so-slow way, the snail makes new friends and goes on a series of adventures, gaining wisdom from every new encounter. But when he finds out his friends are in danger, he decides to rush home to warn them. Will he get there in time to save them?
