About The Book

A riotous, rousing celebration of self‑belief starring the one and only Gail the Snail!

A 'Watch Out For' pick in The Sunday Times: '
A rallying cry for believing in your goals and sticking to them. It makes you laugh and makes everything seem possible.' Nicolette Jones

'Inspiringly bonkers [...] A lively, humorous collaboration from two picture-book stars.' Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian

Gail the snail has always been told not to dream too big or reach too far, but Gail is not your average snail, and she has plans to be the first . . . SNAIL IN SPACE! Join Gail on her stellar adventure and discover the magic of reaching for the stars and giving it your all.
