The Lovereading4Kids comment

Norman the slug longs to be a snail. If only he had a shell! What Norman wishes for, he gets, but it soon turns out that a shell isn’t such a good thing after all. Can Norman save himself and his shell? If he does, will he stop wishing for more things? Bright and bold illustrations bring the good jokes in this story vividly to life. Sue Hendra is also the author of the fabulously funny Barry the Fish with Fingers.
