A moving story about a shy girl coming out of her shell with a little help from her pet snail

Lucy and Dad move a lot, so it’s hard to make friends.

Lucy’s glad she has Snail, the perfect pet for a lonely girl. If only she had her own shell to hide in every time she started at a new school.

But this place is different. She likes her teacher, Miss Darling. She likes her classmates, especially Tahnee. She even likes Mei-hui’s van park, where she lives with Dad and Snail. This place feels like home. But can she convince her dad to stay?

From the author of Bully on the Bus comes this moving story about making friends and finding where you belong.

About the Author: Kathryn Apel is a born-and-bred farm girl who’s scared of cows. She lives among the gum trees, cattle and kangaroos on a Queensland grazing property, where she writes poetry picture books and verse novels. Her previous books include Bully on the Bus, which won the Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature- Younger Readers, Too Many Friends, a CBCA Notable book, and most recently, The Bird in the Herd. Kat loves pumping poetry because she can flex her muscles across other genres, to bend (and break) writing rules. A trained teacher, Kathryn shares her passion for words at schools and festivals around the globe.
