Avi wrote a book entitled The End of the Beginning: Being the Adventures of a Small Snail (and an Even Smaller Ant). I recently added it to our collection. A fun quick read with a couple quotes worth sharing.

  • Edward the Ant and Avon the Snail are lost and Edward is trying to comfort Avon.

"Getting yourself lost is easy. Happens all the time. It's finding yourself that's hard. So, I suggest we stop at the first door we come to and ask for suggestions."

"You mean directions, don't you?"

"It's hard enough being lost, explained Edward, "but worse still if you don't know what you're lost from. So, suggestions first, directions second."

  • Avon doesn't feel like they are making much progress so Edward tries to explain.

"You see, Avon, it all depends on you. If you want it to be different, it will be different. Don't look at the world with your eyes but with your heart."
