Synopsis

Snail, Where are You? by Tomi Ungerer

A newly revitalized edition of Tomi Ungerer's children's classic. Snail, where are you? At a party? At sea? In the mountains? Young sleuths will have hours of fun finding Tomi Ungerer's snail in his many disguises. This beautiful, classic concept book, first published in 1962, has been re-imagined with added text to enhance the playful, gorgeously restored and revitalized illustrations.

Reviews

This treasure hunt makes for jolly good fun given the playfulness of Ungerer's illustrations. -Spirituality and Practice Tomi Ungerer's drawing talent was and is prodigious and he is mercurially inventive with words and ideas. His lengthening rack of children's books have become genre classics. -Man of the World This exquisite new edition of a small Tomi Ungerer treasure from the early 1960s is a visual finding game delivered with a blast of psychedelic color and Ungerer's inimitable style. -The New York Times Book Review The illustrations are whimsical and bright, and their imaginative quirkiness elevates Ungerer's work from standard concept book fare to a more noteworthy, thought-provoking, and unique experience. -School Library

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
