This gastropodic adventure tells the tale of Darren, a young entrepreneur trying to rid his neighbor's garden of snails. Arming himself with a flashlight, a jam jar, and a pocketful of spinach, Darren tackles his mission with gusto, only to find that his neighbor is unwilling to pay for his hard work. That's when he encounters an enormous, slimy, talking snail that is more than willing to help Darren exact his revenge. Full of illustrations and comic strip - like speech bubbles, this story will appeal to the zany side of both adults and children.
