The Quokkas, the Snails, and the Land of Happiness


It’s not about what you achieve; it’s all about what you receive!

In the land of happiness live Bob and Hannah Quokka, two siblings who start their days with their sticker charts filled up and their hearts full too! On the other side of the strawberry field, in the land of sadness, live Tonya and Joey Slug. Their hearts are weighed down. They strive to fill their sticker charts through hard work and achievement—but only discover that they are less content than before! Read about what happens when the two sibling pairs meet, and a bigger conversation—about their Creator, His grace, and where true happiness lies—takes place. What will Tonya and Joey do after learning the truth? Will they live to keep on achieving, or will they live because they start receiving exactly what they need from the One who loves them most?

This unique illustrated chapter book serves as a powerful conversation starter for families, offering not only an engaging parable-style story but follow-up content and questions to help young readers understand and grasp the gift of grace.
