Sedrick the snail was terribly slow,
as slow as a tortoise moving through snow!

Poor Sedrick is the slowest creature in the garden. His friends try to help him move faster, but all of their plans go horribly wrong! Sedrick is miserable, until he meets someone who shows him that taking your time can be a good thing.

There is something for all ages in this light-hearted tale which teaches children that it’s okay to be yourself – in fact, it’s a whole lot of fun!

This charming story is the second children’s book from Stevenage-based Katie Budge. She aspires to write stories that children can fall in love with, while learning morals and values that will stay with them for a lifetime.


Poor Sedrick is the slowest creature in the garden, and he is raring to be super-speedy like his friends – but their plans to help him all go wrong! Will Sedrick learn to accept himself just the way he is?
Join him on his journey in this light-hearted tale.

    A fantastic story for children, simple rhymes to follow accompanied by bright, bold and beautiful illustrations. A cleverly written book to teach children just to be themselves, and that sometimes going slowly can be better. Highly recommended! We all have children in our lives, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cousins, friends with children, neighbours with children… and this book is a perfect gift.
