Adventures of Livvy and the Snail
by Marian Heemskerk

Livvy wants to go on an adventure! She grabs her magnifying glass and heads out to the garden to see what she can find. After following a trail of shiny slime, she discovers a shy little snail named Gary. Gary warms up to Livvy quickly and the two become best friends. They go on lots of adventures together and Livvy even makes Gary a safe place to eat and sleep using a flowerpot. Follow Livvy and Gary as they discover the garden and meet a new friend.
