Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is another fun book in the Are You a... series of books by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries. We like these books. They offer scientific information, but in a colorful and fun format. Children will like how the books speaks to them and helps to compare a human to the creature described. And the Did You Know... section in the back offers additional facts about the topic. We will certainly look for more books in this series.
Captivating story & illustrations - great to introduce children to the topic of snails.

This was featured on Between the Lions. Lots of information on snails. I really liked the way it was written, asking if you have the characteristics of a snail. The end also has a contrast to humans.
I really liked this book. What a fun idea!
