Our favorite beautiful French snail is back, ready to pick out a fancy hat and teach us the latest snail dances for the Snailentine's Day party, but an unexpected development sends an "extremely confident but also mildly concerned" Escargot into their shell. Fortunately, it turns out that there's plenty of joie de vivre to go around.

Geared towards folks who are neurodivergent, but anyone who's ever felt overwhelmed by chores or "care tasks" will find something useful.

All the animals try cheering up an angry tortoise, but they’re not going about it the right way (smelly old boots don’t help me either). A silly story that’s a lesson in empathy and handling negative emotions.
