We’ve launched our fabulous new book Sammy the Rainbow Snail by Alan Grant and Shalla Gray. We held a really fun event at our new shop Curly Tale Books in Wigtown, Scotland’s National Booktown during Book Week Scotland! Apart from a reading of the book by the author and illustrator we had snail racing, and games including ‘tiddly worms’ and a colour Sammy style beetle drive. The mystery snail, who has been named Sebastian following a competition on our facebook page, challenged Sammy to a race but eventually came second, probably due to his flat out race to get to the venue in time!
Our lovely new book in which Sammy the Rainbow snail discovers a strange looking box on the riverbank is suitable for young children and early readers. The charming story has beautiful, bright illustrations from Shalla Gray. You can find it in our website shop, our real shop or at other online retailers.
