Editorial Reviews

Julie Just
An eye-catching valentine to children everywhere who love to get reassurance on the basics
—The New York Times
Publishers Weekly

Elffers (Food Play) teams up with Curious Pictures, producer of such TV shows as Little Einsteins, to introduce Snuzzles. Amorphous and solid-colored, the Snuzzles look a lot like rubber squeak toys, with their heads defined only by protrusions for noses and ears and by googly eyes, but they seem destined for the big time, given that an animated video series is in pre-production. A series of exchanges between Snuzzles big and small, the gentle, rhyming text is the straightforward stuff of bedtime rituals. But while the questions are expected, the answers feel fresh ("Would you leave me?/ Never ever./ Do you want me?/ Only forever"). Set against high-contrast, single-color backgrounds, the action takes place at close range, so that just their heads, or parts of their heads, are visible. Some Snuzzles clearly resemble rabbits or elephants, while others merely have bulbous pseudo ears or noses. The flap copy says that the Snuzzles "express their love by putting nose to nose"; readers are likely to follow their example and "snuzzle closer" themselves. Ages 2-5. (Dec.)

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Joost Elffers's previous books are characterized by his inventive graphics, which involve photos of carved pumpkins, carrots, broccoli and other vegetables that are assembled and posed to resemble animals. For the most part, these are concept books around numbers or emotions. This time around, Elffers takes on that eternal question, "Do you love me?" He partners with a film studio to create amorphous creatures called Snuzzles who show affection by going nose to nose. All one sees is suggestions of faces, with prominent noses, against bold colored backgrounds. The text is a very simple with a question on one spread and the answer on the following: Thus the book opens: "Do you love me?/Always, dear. Do you need me? Always near." Predictably it ends with a kiss goodnight. The Teletubby generation may find all of this appealing; however, I rather wish he had stuck with the vegetables. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

Slightly offbeat, slick computerized illustrations give this paean to parental love an unusual and effective new twist. The rhyming text, clearly intended to be a dialogue between a variety of children and their caregivers, is concise and to the point: "do you love me?/always, dear./do you need me?/ever near." It continues in this vein, ending with: "hug me, hold me./snug and tight./snuzzle closer./kiss good night." With no more than two sentences per page, some of them fragments, the text is easily accessible to the youngest listeners, as well as beginning readers. The artwork, done in bright primary colors on solid backgrounds, depicts close-ups of the faces of large-nosed, round-eyed, mouthless Q-Bertesque creatures. The surprisingly appealing characters, which resemble everything from bears to rabbits to elephants, are portrayed touching noses on most spreads. The reassuring language, soothing rhythm, and charming characters will hold young listeners' attention and likely have a soporific effect at bedtime. A refreshing addition for libraries looking for something a little bit different to spice up their picture-book collections.-Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT

Kirkus Reviews
One half of the How Are You Peeling? team (with Saxton Freymann, 1999) leaves food behind to combine forces with the producers of The Little Einsteins TV show to create "the Snuzzles," mouthless, shiny-eyed, balloon-like animals in saturated hues. The short, rhyming text takes the form of questions posed by young ones and answered by parents: " ‘do you love me?' / ‘always, dear.' / ‘do you need me?' / ‘ever near.' " The minimalist design, which includes the 100% lower-case text in a skinny, sans-serif typeface, places the critters against backgrounds of contrasting colors, in varied orientations. Warm, if not fuzzy. (Picture book. 2-5)

    Engaging, interactive stand alone or read to/with book

    What isn't this book? The only thing it IS NOT is scary...a wonderful box to share with a child/grandchild as well as a young or old friend. Extremely colorful, thought provoking, conversation starter with no ending in the future. I initially purchased two of these books in February - and have since purchased six more...I use them for anyone, young or old, who needs to know that someone loves them for what they are. Terrific gift for a new big brother or sister upon the birth of a younger sibling...as well as a great book for someone alone (or at least feels alone) as a reminder that they aren't.
