Chances are you have gnever heard of the Famous Snaily, but if you were one of the lucky to visit the Gnomish Gardens by the Sea, you'd understand why he is so well known. Famous as he may be among the Gnomish, in many ways Snaily is a gnormal young gnomeling. He does really well in school and loves to play with trucks. He is always a good helper, especially when his Dad gneeds his expertise. Of course, his favorite color is green. But what makes this young gnomeling so Famous is that he was the first in the community to tame the gnotoriously wild snail. Snails did gnot always make for such gnice pets, you know. It wasn't until this young fella found a snail on the sidewalk, gnamed him Gary, and took it upon himself to train the slimy creature. Later, he was able to perfect his technique with his pet water snail gnamed King. He went on to publish the gnumber 1 selling Gnomish book "How to Train Your Snail and Live to Tell the Tale." Gno wonder he is so Famous!

The name Robert means "Famous."
