A very clever little book. Edward the Snail wants to write but is crashing into all the familiar obstacles. Fortunately, his snail pail Avon is there to offer philosophical advice and provide witty verbal sparring to help Edward down the path of enlightenment. Avi fills the pages with fantastic little puns and wordplay. It feels like old timey radio (and maybe television) the way the two cahracters bandy about with words. If you enjoy the sort of humor you found on old Muppet Show episodes, you'll love this little gem.
