Picture Book Review: The Story of Fish & Snail

The Story of Fish and Snail by Deborah Freedman

Goodreads Summary:  Every day, Snail waits for Fish to come home with a new story.

Today, Fish’s story (about pirates!) is too grand to simply be told: Fish wants to show Snail. But that would mean leaving the familiar world of their book—a scary prospect for Snail, who would rather stay safely at home and pretend to be kittens. Fish scoffs that cats are boring; Snail snaps back. Is this book too small for the two feuding friends? Could this be THE END of The Story of Fish and Snail?

This is a delightful book about friendship and bravery. The illustrations are beautiful! I’ve added this to the list of books I’m using for my Caldecott lesson in the fall. In my humble opinion (and I suspect my students will agree) this book is certainly worth of a Caldecott.
