Snail and Worm are back and sweeter than ever as they contemplate their friendship and place in the cosmos in three new stories by Geisel Honor winner Tina Kügler.
These endearing invertebrates may not have backbones, but they always have each other’s backs! With signature cheer and heartfelt humor, these tales celebrate friends who accept each other exactly as they are.
As Publishers Weekly commented on the first book in this series: "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."
Like such popular pairs as Stick and Stone, Narwhal and Jelly, Frog and Toad, and George and Martha, Snail and Worm friendship stories are perfect for early readers.
