Snail and turtle are friends

'Snail and Turtle are friends' celebrates friendship, diversity and companionship.

Snail and Turtle are great friends and like to do things together, at their own pace, in their own way.

Stephen Michael King brings a wonderful sense of humour to this story as seen in both the words and pictures.  The irony depicted between the two brings another layer to this otherwise simple yet endearing story. Subtle messages in the drawings are ideal discussion starters particularly when looking at the literal meaning versus the inferential meaning.

The high gloss snail trails on various pages add to the overall sensory experience. Beautiful illustrations experiment with layout and colour throughout including vignettes and double page spreads.

Another winner from Stephen Michael King!
