I’m one of the characters in these crazy, mystery/detective stories penned by author Sarah Lucas and illustrated by her daughter. While they’re not here, I thought I’d update the website, let you know how funny, educational and gripping these fiction books really are!
How did these books come about, I hear you asking? Well, it was all because when Sarah moved into this house with her family, someone, some kind and generous villager thought: ‘New family? New baby? They need a snail!’ Don’t worry. We didn’t get it either. But that’s this place – a little off the wall. A bit like me and Baby Mac right there.
To be serious, if you are aged 5 to 11 – girl or boy – and you love adventure stories with a lot of humour, you are going to love these books. Ideal for paired reading in schools, for sharing at home at bed-time – or any time – the short chapters make them a quick read.
There’s loads to see on this site: a page about the author where you can read all about how she writes, where she got the inspiration from for this series of books, learn about land snails, about how her school visits run or how to get onto one of her inspiring Putting Pen to Paper creative writing courses. Then of course there’s the Book Shop and the Blog. Not that she writes much for the Blog; she’s too busy writing or teaching others how to write. But if she’s going to be somewhere and you’d like to meet her, it will tell you where she’s going to be in her Blog.

Baby Mac’s pretty good at putting stuff into envelopes and licking stamps. No glue required. And everything goes by Express Snail Mail. If you’re lucky, you might even find a snail trail coming your way – all courtesy of madaboutsnailbooks. E-mail me anyway. I’d love to get off the top of this page, back into the tank. There’s fruit there – and cucumber. I love cucumber.
