They have a silvery, sticky mucus that they leave behind as they move at their top speed of 45 m an hour/1 cm per second, making them one of the slowest creatures on Earth. Their slime means that they can move safely over cut glass or a knife's edge. Snails can be brown, yellow, red or pink.The world's smallest snail is less that the size of a grain of sand.Full of facts, the accessible text combined with cute, beautiful artwork results in a stunning non-fiction picture book.Ideal for allowing children to learn more about minibeasts, but also for introducing them to habitats and understanding other living creatures
