Booklist - 10/01/2019 Snail and Worm return (Snail & Worm, 2016) with guileless charm and enthusiasm in three new adventures. This time, Snail redefines a best day, narrowly escapes a spooky cave with its dragon, and ends with a reassuring bedtime story in which he and Worm reaffirm their friendship. Kügler’s humor shines in the second story, “The Spooky Cave,” in which Snail never does realize that he has mistaken a turtle’s shell for a cave, and the turtle inside for a dragon. The good-natured friendship of Worm and Snail recalls Arnold Lobel's classic stories of Frog and Toad, with the humor deriving naturally from Snail’s personality. Kügler’s clever, off-kilter stories are enhanced by colorful, expressive cartoon illustrations that give strong textual support. Occasional panels create the feel of a graphic novel, and color-coded dialogue supports emerging readers. Kugler conveys a striking range of emotions with artfully drawn eyes. This latest Snail and Worm book is a strong addition to all early reader collections and a surefire hit with children and their adults. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
