It all began with a weird conversation one bedtime between my son Isaac (6) and me. Somehow—I can’t remember the route—the conversation settled on fantasising about a creature called a ‘snail monkey’.

Isaac then asked me to create a website for him to share the news with the world.

How could I possibly say no?

So here it is: snailmonkey.wordpress.com.


It turns out, that we weren’t the first to think about this. Check out our first blog post called Maybe there is such a thing…
