Praise For Snail and Worm: Three Stories About Two Friends

"Snail and Worm’s direct, simplified dialogue is perfect for beginning readers, and their unabashed dopiness—equally evident in their conversations and in Kügler’s mixed-media cartoons—delivers a steady stream of laughs. "
—Publishers Weekly

"Kügler’s cartoonish creatures, rendered simply in thin lines and soft colors, each have comically googly eyes and cheery expressions, which add plenty of fun visual punchlines and context clues to the short, direct sentences making up the easy-to-read text...The heartening message about accepting a friend’s quirks is a cozy bonus."
—Booklist
