Sammy the Slug was feeling miserable about being a slug. With his slimy coat and appetite for petunia plants, he suspected he was the least popular of all the small animals in the Hornby family's garden. Then kind-hearted Woody, the woodlouse, offered to be his friend and find a way to cheer him up. Discovering that Hugo Hornby was putting on a Slug 'n' Snail race, he persuaded Sammy to take part. Sammy's willingness to help himself led to his life changing in the most spectacular way.
