Title: The Story of Fish and Snail

Author: Deborah Freedman

KDL Description:

E FREEDMAN

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.

Amazon Description:

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?

Deborah Freedman, author of Blue Chicken, has created a sweet and playful story about friendship that truly jumps off the page.
