When snakes shed their skins they are on their bellies and they
pull real hard to get their skin off. It takes them a long time about
a yard they have to move forward. Once they are done their skin usually
comes out in one long piece. It is sticky and silky too.
My book I read was Half Magic. It was so good I liked it when they
would surprise you with a new wish. I didn't really like it in the beginning
because it wasn't really that good or active. But otherwise I loved it.
