The Lovereading4Kids comment

Packed full of emotion, this touching story tells how a lonely old creature is transformed when a stranger turns up at his door and starts to tell him a story…The sadness of the Snorgh, the chaos caused when the Sailor turns up, the beauty of the story and how it changes the lives of the two new acquaintances is a lyrical story which is full of action but also leaves much to think about.

Synopsis

The Snorgh and the Sailor by Will Buckingham

Snorghs don't have visitors. Snorghs don't share soup. And Snorghs most definitely do not like adventures. But then a bedraggled sailor arrives telling exciting stories of exotic lands - and the Snorgh finds himself going on an adventure after all.

A poignant and witty story about an unlikely friendship, a surprising journey and the discovery that we can all do the most amazing things, if we only dare to.

The stunning, atmospheric artwork is by Thomas Docherty, whose previous book, Little Boat, was shortlisted for the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
