Summary, etc.:
"A sweet story about looking on the bright side. A rainy day in spring is the perfect time for the snail family to go out on a picnic. Carrying a basket of provisions and some toys, the snails set off under the most delightful downpour. But no sooner have they started that the clouds lift to make way for sparkling sunshine. Oh, no! Their picnic is ruined! Fortunately, young Margaux finds a way to save the day and before long, the family is nibbling on lettuce and berries under the shelter of a lovely raspberry bush. The snails have found the perfect time to have a picnic after all! This gentle story evokes the pleasures of family life, as well as the beauty of the natural world. The delight the snails experience when they go out in the rain invites us to consider the world from a different perspective and reminds us to see the good side of every situation."-- Provided by publisher
