Synopsis

Snail Brings the Mail by Russell Punter

A humourous tale, specially written to develop phonemic awareness. Ideal for reading aloud and for children who are beginning to read for themselves. Rhythmic, phonically repetitive text helps to develop essential language and early reading skills, and guidance notes at the back give parents confidence as they help their child learn to read. Postman snail does his best but he's ever so slow. After a bad storm - and a flood which almost prevents snail completing his round - snail spots something for sale which ends all his troubles.

About the Author

Russell Punter

Russell’s earliest ambition was to become an artist, well third earliest actually, after dating Marie Osmond and becoming the first 9 year old to play the part of Doctor Who.

He joined Usborne Publishing as a designer in 1987 but since discovering his literary side in 2003, he has written over twenty books for the company.

He loves writing for children and his biggest fan is his niece, although he’s not letting the fact that she’s not yet old enough to read bother him.
