ISBN: 9781915071071
Author: Oein DeBhairduin
Format: Hardback

Drawn from the Irish Traveller storytelling tradition, DeBhairduin’s tale is a gentle allegory about identity, self-acceptance and different ways of seeing the world. Two slugs travel happily together until they meet a crow who asks them where their home is. The younger brother, embarrassed, makes himself a shell, and calls himself snail.

The older brother carries on as he is. At first, the brothers grow apart. But in time, they learn to respect each other’s way of life.
