Fairy Tale Friday- The Happy Family

I’m loving this feature for finding books that I hadn’t know much about or even heard of. That was the case for this week’s fairy tale The Happy Family. It centres around a family of snails that live in a burdock forest. These snails were ancient. They didn’t realise just how old they were, but knew that the forest had been planted for them. They knew that if they ever left their burdock leaf they would be boiled, turn black and lay upon a silver dish. The mother and the father snail want a wife for their son. They use the ants and gnats to search for the wife. In the end, the son marries and the family of snails are super happy!
