Summary

In a book that is as cheerful and charming as Snail himself, Corey Tabor tells a winning tale of slow but steady Snail, whose determination and kindness bring him the best reward of all: friendship.

When Snail spies a plump, crisp cabbage across the road, nothing will stop him--not a speeding car or even a hungry crow.

But then kindhearted Snail stops to help a crew of antsy ants in a rainstorm, and he loses his way. It looks like he will never get his treat--until Snail's new friends come up with an ingenious idea. . . .

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Tabor, 2019 Geisel Award winner for Fox the Tiger (2018), offers a cozy take on the theme that one good turn deserves another. Snail, having spotted an entire patch of yummy cabbage on the other side of a road, slides onto the blacktop only to be narrowly missed by a speeding car and then jostled by a crowd of rude ants. When rain starts to fall, though, kindhearted Snail invites the beleaguered ants into his capacious and comfortably furnished shell for tea. Later, he continues his determined journey until a crow forces him to take evasive action and another car leaves him so discombobulated that, when he reaches the road's edge at last, he discovers himself back where he started. But perhaps that cabbage isn't out of reach yet. The softly hued illustrations, as simply drawn as the narrative is concise, close with a view of Snail's pink shell, big enough to contain all his new friends. Even the antsiest reader will be beguiled into turning over a new leaf.--John Peters Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Snail is determined to munch on the delicious-looking cabbage growing in the field across the road ("Cabbage bound! I'm cabbage bound!" he sings). Readers can see there's big trouble ahead: snail moves at, well, a snail's pace; cars and trucks are barreling down the forbidding, dark asphalt, and a crow thinks that Snail would make a tasty meal. But looming disaster is averted, and Snail eventually gets the cabbage he seeks, because he's willing to put his mission on hold momentarily to give refuge--and tea--to some rude ants in a rainstorm (the interior of his shell is as cozy and domestically equipped as can be). Working in digitally finished pencil and wash, Geisel Award--winner Tabor (Fox the Tiger) presents a pink protagonist who's an endearing mix of stubborn and openhearted, with eyestalks that are by turns steely and befuddled. The author handles the tricky themes of kindness and forgiveness with the lightest of touches ("Terribly sorry," the ants tell Snail regarding their earlier brusqueness. "Sometimes we get antsy") and a sweet, loopy storytelling logic. Ages 4--8. (Feb.)"
