In the colorful, quirky world of Leslie McGuirk, a pony-sized talking snail convinces the perfect boy to be his owner, and the pair builds a friendship strengthened by the differences between them. When you're a Gigantic Exotic Gastropod in full bloom, life can be pretty challenging. After all, there are plenty of Snail Catchers out there, not to mention circuses and zookeepers eager to put you on display. But finding just the right owner can be tricky, despite your obvious assets: no fur that needs brushing, an impressive vocabulary, and being big enough to ride on - very slowly, of course. Is there anyone in this fast-paced world who might consider Snail to be the coolest pet around?
