The End of the Beginning: Being the Adventures of a Small Snail (and an Even Smaller Ant)


Publisher: Harcourt Children's BooksFormat: Hardcover

Avon the snail has never had an adventure. And adventure, he has heard, is the key to a happy life. So with his new friend Edward the ant, Avon sets out on a journey to find the excitement his life has been missing.The travelers meet all manner of wise, weird, and intriguing creatures—including a dragon —and it's not long before their adventures begin.In the tradition of such classics as “The Little Prince,” "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,“ and ”Winnie-the-Pooh," this completely original story—a modern fable for our time—brims with wit, wisdom, and profound insights about the meaning of things . . . great “and” small.
