Fish and Snail live in a book. One day, Fish returns to the book with a new story that he wants to show Snail. This new story is filled with adventure and excitement, but Snail doesn't want to go see it. He wants to stay in their book and play their usual games. Arguments ensue, and Fish leaves the book in a huff. Snail is beside himself, bemoaning just how their book can be called The Story of Fish and Snail if there is no Fish? He works up his courage and takes the plunge, diving into the unknown to follow his friend. Compromises are reached, conflicts resolved, courage is found and fun results.
The illustrations in this book are simply stunning. They make me smile, and I can't wait to share this little gem with my story time audience. Fish and Snail are incredibly cute! Their travels outside of the book are wonderfully depicted as the artist makes very effective use of color against black and white. Perhaps my favorite spread is the one showing the water splashing up from the page as Snail takes his big dive. The artist's unique design adds a three dimensional feel to the book that is hard to describe. Much like her other works, this is one you simply have to see to fully appreciate.
The Story of Fish and Snail is a must have for any classroom, story time, or preschooler's personal collection. This will make an excellent gift book that is sure to be enjoyed over and over again as kids ponder the very notion that book characters might actually leave their book. Just imagine...the possibilities are endless.
