About this book
A wonderful mix of adventure, history and fun, this tells the story of how a 13 year old boy invented the Citroen 2CV, a car for the people! Set in pre-WWII and occupied France, it's loosely based on a true story, as the son of car designer Flaminio Bertoni gets involved in his father's work. Ages: 9+
In the 1940s world of elegant, luxury automobiles, the Tin Snail is no beauty. But it's facing a tough challenge: to carry a farmer and his wife, a flagon of wine and a tray of eggs across a bumpy field in a sleepy French village - without spilling a drop or cracking a shell.
