The Tin Snail

Cameron McAllister

About the book

It’s 1938.
In order to save his dad’s job, Angelo needs to invent a brand-new car that can carry:

a farmer
his wife
two chickens
a flagon of wine
and a dozen eggs

across a bumpy field without breaking a single egg . . . and without the enemy discovering his top-secret design!

Here's the extraordinary story – inspired by real events – of how one little car changed history.
