The Story of Fish & Snail
by Deborah Freedman
Snail just wants to hear about other stories, not go visit them! Whenever Fish returns from a journey to another book, Snail happily listens to what Fish saw. However, when Fish is eager to show Snail an exciting new book, Snail is reluctant to follow. A bitter argument follows, causing Fish to dive out of the book. Will Snail follow or remain forever in the same story?
What a cute, imaginative story of friendship and trying something new! I loved the background illustrations – mostly blues representing the inside of the aquarium in Snail’s book, with the occasional black and white behind them showing the library their book is in.
