The Legend of the Golden Snail

Snailing Ship, rise and shine,
Hoist the sails and trim them fine,

Taste once more the salty brine,

For with this spell I make you mine!

(From The Legend of the Golden Snail by Graeme Base)

Last night we read the most delightful book at bedtime -- The Legend of the Golden Snail by Graeme Base. The story is about a little boy who goes on a grand adventure. Along the way he assists several magical creatures, who, in turn, help him on his quest. My son and I are always up for a story of grand adventure, and the beautiful illustrations in this book are enchanting. Plus, on every page there is a hidden symbol, so reading the book is also a treasure hunt! For a peek at all the fun, you can visit the authors website.

After school today, we're off to the library to find more books by Graeme Base...
