This is a modern folk tale about a snail and his friend, an ant. The two leave their home to seek adventure. Through their absurd encounters and conversations, they come to realize the importance of their journey.
This is a very quick and easy read (lots of drawings), but it is heavy on word play and laden with deeper meanings if you choose to look for them.
