Synopsis

Snail's Legs by Damian Harvey

Snail is the fastest runner in the whole wood. Frog used to be faster, but now he is too old. But when the king's chef arrives in search of the strongest legs to help him prepare a special birthday treat for the king, the two friends argue over who will have the great honour. They decide to settle the matter on a race and Snail looks like he will win easily. But he looks back to see the determination on old Frog's face and decides to hide away and let him win. Frog is declared the champion with the best legs in the kingdom. However, one question still remains. What is the chef going to DO with Frog's legs? This new edition of this strong-selling picture book has a redesigned cover.

Reviews

This book about showing off fast, strong legs turns into a book about legs going into hiding, a story where legs have to be kept-under-a-shell secret legs. The author and illustrator also reveal the truth about snail shells and the slippery substance snail's trail behind them. || A very funny cautionary tale, enlivened with Korky Paul's distinctive illustrations.
