A strange book about an illustrated fish who is able to jump into other narratives and asks his friend snail to accompany him. Doesn't really deliver on the promise of the premise, but the illustrations are lovely.

Think outside the book in this warm-hearted friendship tale in which an uptight snail and an adventurous fish start a new story together.

The artwork is beautiful.

That being said, I finished this book and went to take a shower, and when I got out I could not remember how the book ended. That's a bad sign.

I'm a bit preoccupied today, so I may have only myself to blame, but this one just didn't win me over.
