The Snail who was in a Hurry
R. K. Britton
This is the story of a snail who was dissatisfied with life because he was very slow and other animals, reptiles and insects were always racing past and leaving him behind. So he goes on a journey to get advice on how he can learn to move faster. But he comes home again having learned that it is best not to try to be what you are not and instead to make the best of what you are.
