“Oh dear! Stop crying. I will be your dad.” “And I willbe your mom. Come on!”
The two snails took him to a big special butterburleaf where they were always living.
A few days later, the little young snail ate deliciousfood and recovered slowly.
Even his mom and dad were surprised that the babysnail could crawl very quickly and play far away from the leaf.
“Sweet heart, you don’t need to crawl very fast. Always walk slowly.”
She showed him slow crawling.
When it rained, funny sounds came from the splashing raindrops on the butterbur leaf.
“Do you like it? It sounds like a drum, doesn’t it?” The husband snail was proud of himself as ifhe made the sound.
“Wow, it’s funny.” The baby snail was very happy.
The baby snail is old enough to marry now.
His Mom and Dad searched for his bride crawling from one butterbur leaf to another.
A ladybug heard it and visited them.
“I know a great one.”
Mom and dad snails were happy to hear that and asked. “Does she have a house?”
“It’s not just a house. She has her own wonderful castle with 700 hallways. She is the queenant.” The ladybug told them proudly.
“Thank you for your kindness, but our baby will be eaten by ants if he marries to the queenant.”
The mom snail rejected the ladybug’s kindness.
After a while, a fly taught them there was a young woman snail right next to her.
The snail family decided the woman snail would be the baby snail’s bride.
The night of the wedding, six fireflies shone beautiful bluish light on the ceremony.
The snail family lived together happily and peacefully ever after.
