Man and Mollusc's First Children's Book
By Robynn Honeychurch, Illustrated by Anna Palumbo,science content,edited and financed by Avril Bourquin, compiled by Shawn Honeychurch
This is the first book in a proposed series of books aimed at introducing children to the wonderful world of molluscs. Each book will introduce a new character and all the stories will be accompanied with a "science behind the story" section.
Sammy's Adventure, a 32 page, fully illustrated and coloured book, is the story of a forest snail who gets kidnapped from his home. He is taken in as a pet and then eventually escapes. This delightful story tells of all his adventures until he is finally safe again, at home by his favorite brook. Children ages 3 - 12+ will love this exciting, educational story.
Presented from the snail's point of view, kids will feel connected to the mollusc and his plight in this story. Though Sammy is truly a fictitious character and his story is fiction, his actual life is based on a conglomerate of existing land snails, their life styles and their habits. The science behind this story is presented for your information at the end of the book.
