The End of the Beginning: Being the Adventures of a Small Snail (and an Even Smaller Ant)
3 journalers for this copy...
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.
This was a cute little read. Sometimes I felt like Edward had me going in circles, but in a fun way. Avon was my favorite. My favorite part was Avon's "adventure" with the grasshopper. Certainly can't argue with logic like that! LOL
Given to a fellow bookcrosser to read to her little one when the time is right..
