Team Review, Rowena; This was a lovely simple story with so much heart from the verse to the illustrations. The wonderful theme of helping others - whether at school, at home, in the community or our planet.  Spoken though the eyes of a child torn between her loyally to her father & her need to be part of a community.

A moving story about a shy girl coming out of her shell with a little help from her pet snail. Lucy and Dad move a lot, so it's hard to make friends. Lucy's glad she has Snail, the perfect pet for a lonely girl. If only she had her own shell to hide in every time she started at a new school. But this place is different. She likes her teacher, Miss Darling. She likes her classmates, especially Tahnee. She even likes Mei-hui's van park, where she lives with Dad and Snail. This place feels like home. But can she convince her dad to stay?

From the author of Bully on the Bus comes this moving story about making friends and finding where you belong.
