About the Author

Samantha Berger has written picture books including What If..., Crankenstein and A Crankenstein Valentine, Witch Spa, Snoozefest, Santa's Reindeer Games, and Martha Doesn't Say Sorry, which won a Parent's Choice Award Honor. When she isn't writing, she's doing voice-overs, traveling the world, and helping rescue dogs. Samantha splits her time between New York City and California. Julia Patton is an award-winning author and illustrator with more than twenty-five picture books and educational titles published internationally. She has a BA in Textile Design & Embroidery from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MA in Illustration from The University of Edinburgh. When not illustrating you will find her building tree houses, growing vegetables and hand making sketchbooks to fill with new stories, characters and adventures. She lives in Northumberland, England.


"The art shows irresistible snails with eyeballs on stalks protruding above their clothed soft parts, shells exposed to the weather. Engaging watercolors offer varied landscapes and postcardlike views of famous landmarks. The absurdity of the premise-and repeated promise-is humorously upheld throughout."---Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"[An] appropriately leisurely paced tale about the pleasures of taking one's time."---Shelf Awareness
"[C]hildren will be delighted by the colorful illustrations throughout the storybook-especially the humorous renderings of four tried and true, hard-working snails."--New York Journal of Books
"This delightfully silly interpretation of snail mail will also appeal to adults wishing for the slower pace and handmade charm of pen and paper correspondence."--School Library Journal
"Patton's layered images evoke the pleasures of paper."--The New York Times
"A charming story of love, determination, adventure and the rewards of three, this fun and comical book is a genuine delight."--Books to Borrow . . . Books to Buy
