This is the story of a brave little car that helped to win a war. In the 1940s world of elegant, luxury automobiles, the Tin Snail is no beauty. But it's facing a tough challenge: to carry a farmer and his wife, a flagon of wine and a tray of eggs across a bumpy field in a sleepy French village - without spilling a drop or cracking a shell. And then an even bigger challenge comes along - staying hidden from an officer of the occupying Nazi army, who is bent on stealing the design for the enemy! Loosely inspired by real events, with ingredients from the best children's favourites (a dash of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a pinch of Hugo, and a sprinkling of Dad's Army) this debut novel from successful screenwriter Cameron McAllister is set to be a classic hit and a fun, big-hearted read for the whole family.
