The Puff Adder Who Was Stuck

Written by Jackie Lewis
Colour artwork by Cindy Crew

THE HEROINE FINDS A SNAKE trapped under a fence. But that is not all she finds. In addition, Opal experiences the Puff Adder's rightful place in the universe when she learns how snakes contribute to the well-being of the entire-ecosystem. Unfolding as a traditional legend, promoting understanding of nature and all of its creatures, The Puff Adder Who Was Stuck is the first of a series of stories from Hastings County, told and illustrated by sisters Jackie Lewis and Cindy Crew.
