Marvin the snake is scary to everyone and every thing. He makes frogs flee and worms wriggle and eight-year-olds squeal like four-year-olds. But one day he goes to the desert and learns that being brave is really just a matter of knowing who you are.
This ophidian bildungsroman (in other words, “snake coming-of-age story”) contains lush cloudscapes, the Kremlin, and not even one four-syllable word.
