*Review* Walter the Wonder Snail by Neil Clark


Genre: Children's 3-6 years
Published: April 4, 2023
Pages: 32

Walter is a snail who is really, really bored of leaves. Surely there's more to life than leaves? His fellow snails are happy just slowly munching away... but not Walter! He wants to try something new.

Walter's never seen beyond the large, looming leaves and tall towering flowers of his simple, small world. He sets out on an
 incredible journey full of challengesunlikely friends and remarkable sights!

 brave, curious snail meets heart warming animal characters, like Lottie the squirrel and Kendrick the frog, who inspire him to continue on a big adventure, particularly for such a tiny creature.

Comical scenarios, rich artwork and a stunning colour palette makes this a lovable read. Walter the snail will encourage readers to think big and not to be afraid of change!

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This was a cute story about an adventurous snail who wants to do more than just live among the leaves. Even though all the other snails tell him that his dreams are not what snails do, he goes out and does it anyway. Reminding kids to not listen to what everyone else says they can or cannot do. 

The illustrations were fun and colorful, showcasing Walter's many adventures. I could read this book a few times because it has a great message and it's not a dull chain events. It also doesn't have any problems with flow. Overall I give this book 3.79 out of 5 stars. - Katie
