About “The Story of Fish and Snail”:
A delightfully clever story of friendship from the author of “Blue Chicken.” Every day, Snail waits for Fish to return and tell him a story, but their friendship is tested when Fish asks Snail to take a leap out of their book to actually see a new pirate book in the library.
About “Blue Chicken”:
A mind-bendingly clever farmyard romp
In this deceptively simple picture book, author-illustrator Deborah Freedman has created an irresistible character that springs to life and wreaks havoc in a farmyard with a pot of blue paint. The innocent chicken just wants to help, but things get worse and worse – and bluer and bluer – the more she tries. Playing with colors and perspective, and using minimal text, this richly layered story reveals new things to see and laugh about with each reading.
