A young boy’s favorite storybook tells of a Golden Snail that lived long ago in the mythical Spiral Isles. When it journeyed through its magical realm, it took on the shape of a fantastical golden sailing ship. One day the ship was captured by a Great Enchanter and put under his spell. After he became bored with the Snail, the Enchanter banished it to the Ends of the Earth so no one else could ever sail in it. There it remains until a new master comes to claim it. Could a young boy named Wilbur be the next master?   Featuring Graeme Base’s visually stunning signature art (packed with details, including a hidden “snail and crossbones” to search for in each picture) and a bonus mini book (bound in, nonremovable), The Legend of the Golden Snail is an adventure unlike any other.

One little boy living on a farm in rural Texas gets a big surprise when he discovers tiny flying elephants under his bed. But his mom doesn’t like critters in the house, so he tries to keep them a secret. Until one day they escape from his bedroom and cause havoc in the house. But when locusts invade the farm and start to destroy crops, the elephants come to the rescue! Bestselling author-illustrator Graeme Base has created a unique story with his signature illustrations, which are sure to appeal to young readers. Praise for Little Elephants "The minimal text wisely recedes for Base's gorgeous paintings, and the story's very implausibility is a large part of the delight... An offbeat and winning mix of earthiness and enchantment." —Kirkus Reviews "This is a strange, magical book. Base’s lush paintings ground the fanciful story in its realistic rural setting. At the same time, the landscapes are suffused with a golden glow that casts a soporific charm over the whole book. Interesting visual details abound, from the mouse’s thimble helmet to the prophetic circus posters on the walls. A great book to enjoy one-on-one." —School Library Journal "Graeme Base has done it again. His beautifully detailed paintings are such an important part of this story." —Library Media Connection
