Clyde the Magnificent Snail Shark!

If you have read any of the Penny White books you will, like me, be an avowed fan of Cylde. It is only fitting that he has been honoured with his own short.

As the title tells us Clyde has a day out and has some interesting encounters - to say more would be a spoiler.

You should read this if you are a fan. If you are not you should read The Temptation of Dragons right now, then you will be a fan and then you will want to read this!

Clyde. Snail shark, predator, simple... or is he?

Clyde sneaks out of the back yard for a snack and a little adventure. But when a potential snack turns friend, and then prey to a new predator, Clyde has a decision to make. Will he lean on morals Penny has been teaching him or lean on his predatory instincts?

This was a fun little story for those familiar with the Penny White series. Throughout the series we see Penny's side of the story. Her not-so-little-anymore friend doesn't say much, and ofte

Clyde, the titular character, is one of my all-time favorite book characters. As the other works he graces are not from his viewpoint, it wasn't until reading this that I learned a little more of his true depth. He is a hero on his adventure and yet behaves in keeping with a predator being taught to think about his prey. Please read this and all of the Penny White adventures. They will touch you in ways you will never expect. Plus they can be very funny.

Wonderful little short story. Love Clyde as a character. Penny could be quite the character in this series. I am definitely interested in reading the rest of this series.

Priest by day, writer at odd times of the day and night, I live with a small green parrot called Tilly because the upkeep for a dragon is beyond my current budget. Plus I’m responsible for making good any flame damage to church property. I love ‘Doctor Who’, landscape photography, single malt whisky, and my job, in no particular order. When I’m not looking after a small parish church in the Midlan ...more
