Snorghs don’t have visitors. Snorghs don’t share soup. And Snorghs most definitely DO NOT like adventures. But then a bedraggled sailor arrives telling exciting stories of exotic lands—and the Snorgh finds himself going on an adventure after all. A poignant and witty story about an unlikely friendship; a surprising journey—and the discovery that we can all do the most amazing things, if we only dare to.
