Grandpappy snippy snappies

His suspenders all the day


What those suspenders can do!

A simple snippy snap of Grandpappy's suspenders always saves the day in a topsy-turvy way!

But what happens when Grandpappy's suspenders lose their snap?

Droopy draggy Grandpappy still has to come to the rescue—and he'd better make it snappy!

Lynn Plourde's catchy alliterations will have young readers snippy snappying! And so will the slaphappy illustrations by Christopher Santoro. So snap to it, and join Grandpappy in this slapstick comedy for kooky kiddies of all ages.

Praise For Grandpappy Snippy Snappies

“There is plenty of visual detail to enjoy, including the way the words themselves bounce around the pages. This book should find a happy home in early childhood classrooms; at the same time, it promises to be a fun way to snippy-snappy off to bed.”
-Association of Children's Literature

“Whimsical tale of an everyday hero ...Together the cartoon and realistic elements add depth, detail, and humor to the tale.”
-School Library Journal

“Rollicking, rhyming picture book that is sure to please...Children are sure to enjoy this..sure bet for story hours.”
-ALA Booklist

“Santoro’s wildly exaggerated cartoons and the cleverly designed word composition echo the action and put the snap into this goofy tale.”
