A student brings her pet snails to school each day. Their names are Vendaline, Bella, Venus, Burger, Benny and Felle.
Snails are surprisingly charismatic and exciting friends. Also quite slimy.
This is an opportunity to mention the Danish book series “Den rustne verden” by Adam O. The story is set in a dystopian setting, where Denmark has been transformed to a giant junk yard by a multi-national corporation. And the main hero has snails.
