Snail and Turtle are friends

Stephen Michael King
Scholastic Australia
ISBN: 9781743620236           RRP: $24.99

Snail and Turtle could well be nick-names for two children but they are indeed two small creatures doing people-like things. They like doing things together and given their common habit of not rushing into things, this comes easily. They also like doing different things but being good friends they are comfortable with this. The text is absolutely minimal while more detailed illustrations take the story further; these are wonder-filled, in all their colour, detail and humour.
