Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Snail meets Worm, Snail has been blithely playing with his friends Bob and Anne, a rock and stick, respectively. Happily, Worm isn't bothered by Snail's inanimate buddies and joins right in. Next, Snail wants to climb a very tall flower. Like a good buddy, Worm cheers him on all the way to the top. Readers will be tickled when they see where Snail ends up, particularly when he looks back at his shell and exclaims, I can see my house! In the closing vignette, Worm describes his big, furry, brown pet, but Snail thinks it sounds like a scary spider. Kügler'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. Thanks to Kügler's large-format illustrations, early readers should handily pick up on the gently humorous miscommunications between Snail and Worm. The heartening message about accepting a friend's quirks is a cozy bonus.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Two new friends-neither, let's say, in danger of winning a MacArthur Genius Grant anytime soon-star in three cheerfully screwy stories from Kügler (In Mary's Garden). In the first, Worm meets Snail while the gastropod is playing tag with a rock. "I win! I am fast. You are slow," Snail taunts the immobile rock, its eyestalks almost seeming to cheer in delight. Snail scales a tall flower in the equally funny second story, reveling in the amazing views while ignoring that its weight has caused the flower to bend down to the ground. "Wow! They look like ants down there!" Snail raves, staring at actual ants. "Wow! I can see my house!" Snail adds, looking at the shell affixed to its body. The friends show off their pets in the third story-a dog Snail thinks is a spider and a spider believed to be a dog. 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. Ages 6-9. Agent: Teresa Kietlinski, Prospect Agency. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
