Now I want to spend a day drawing snails :D they do make great temporary pets. I like the Calef Brown poem where they are everywhere, it is the perfect illustration of my brother in laws first day as a sou chef.
It must be snail week. Maybe it's the heat; we're all going slowwwwllllyyyy....take a peek at my post over at Children's Illustration...http://picturebookillustration.blogspot.ca/Thanks for yet another wonderful collection, Laura.

The book about the two snails from my childhood.http://wool-bulb.livejournal.com/16646.html
So many beautiful snails. They are so cute, aren't they. I had one catch a ride on my bike and found it slithering along my carpet when I brought my bike in. I hadn't the heart to kill it so it's now in the garden outside. I love the colorful one by Twoems! Great post, Laura!
