Product description

Norman is a slug who longs to be a snail – if only he could find a shell! And he’s prepared to go to hilarious lengths to get a proper shell of his own. A tennis ball… An apple… What will Norman use for his precious shell? And when he finally finds the perfect shell, will he be satisfied? Or will his dreams just keep on getting bigger? Laugh out loud at Norman’s crazy antics in this wonderfully colourful picture book from the creator of Barry the Fish With Fingers.

“Lovely glittery illustrations and simple text make this a must for pre-schoolers.” Daily Mail
