Readers of Stick and Stone and Elephant and Piggie will love Snail and Worm, an unlikely pair sure to delight with three different laugh-out-loud adventures. By Geisel Honor winner Tina Kügler.
Snail and Worm are an unlikely pair sure to delight by combining deceptively simple art with clever wordplay.
Told in three comical, episodic shorts and ranging in topic from adventuring to having pets, Snail and Worm will have readers laughing at the friends’ silly antics, making it a perfect book for readers transitioning between picture books and chapter books.
This beloved duo are back at it in Snail and Worm Again, Tina Kügler’s Geisel Honor–winning companion to Snail and Worm, and complete their hat trick (wait, do worms wear hats?) in Snail and Worm All Day.
"Snail and Worm’s direct, simplified dialogue is perfect for beginning readers, and their unabashed dopiness—equally evident in their conversations and in Kügler’s mixed-media cartoons—delivers a steady stream of laughs. " —Publishers Weekly "Ku¨gler’s cartoonish creatures, rendered simply in thin lines and soft colors, each have comically googly eyes and cheery expressions, which add plenty of fun visual punchlines and context clues to the short, direct sentences making up the easy-to-read text...The heartening message about accepting a friend’s quirks is a cozy bonus." —Booklist —
