Norman the Slug is looking for a perfect shell-but can he find his match? Find out in this "fantastically bold and fun picture book that will teach children the importance of accepting who you are" ( Junior News and Mail ).

Norman is a slug who longs to be a snail-if only he could find the right shell! He tries a tennis ball, an apple, and even an alarm clock but none of them feels quite right. Until one day, Norman stumbles upon a doughnut! What could be better than that? But is that sweet shell really the perfect fit?

From Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, the bestselling, award-winning creators of Barry the Fish with Fingers , I Need a Wee and Supertato!

Perfect for fans of Oi Frog!
