Full description for The Legend of the Golden Snail
A young boy's favorite storybook tells of a Golden Snail that lived long ago in the mythical Spiral Isles. When it journeyed through its magical realm, it took on the shape of a fantastical golden sailing ship. One day the ship was captured by a Great Enchanter and put under his spell. After he became bored with the Snail, the Enchanter banished it to the Ends of the Earth so no one else could ever sail in it. There it remains until a new master comes to claim it. Could a young boy named Wilbur be the next master? Featuring Graeme Base's visually stunning signature art (packed with details, including a hidden "snail and crossbones" to search for in each picture) and a bonus mini book (bound in, nonremovable), "The Legend of the Golden Snail" is an adventure unlike any other.
