Pre-K to 3rd grade. Henry Holt. ISBN 978-0805086980

Seymour is an artistic snail and he is looking for a job in all the wrong places. At a French Restaurant? At the Gooey Garden Pest Control Company? When Seymour finally finds a job at the Speedy Arts Gallery, he is thrilled--until he finds himself sliming envelopes shut and delivering packages. Well, even great artists have to start somewhere. Who knows? Seymour's big break might be just around the corner!

"Seymour Snail is an endearing artist..."

"Cushman’s anthropomorphized bugs from the art gallery are a hoot..."

"Creative wordplay abounds..."

"Engaging characters and winning art create a solid addition to the field of transitional literature."
--KIRKUS REVIEWS, April 1, 2009

"Young gradeschoolers will enjoy all the talk about slime and goo, as well as the puns about a friendly spider, who is working on something big--the World Wide Web. Children will also cheer for the small creature, who oozes along at a snail's pace but triumphs in the end."
