Synopsis

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.
    This modern fable is filled with funny--and profound--insights about the meaning of things . . . great and small.
