Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“Rollicking, rhyming picture book that is sure to please...Children are sure to enjoy this..sure bet for story hours.”
Association of Children's Literature
“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.”
Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
A single read-through of this book is all the evidence one needs to believe Lynn Plourde's claim that she has loved words and reading ever since she can remember. Once this read-aloud begins, children will love joining in on refrains such as "Snippy-snappy-snoo/ What those suspenders can do!/ Snippy Snappy up/snippy snappy down/snippy snappy smile, snippy snappy frown!" All that alliteration is great for phonemic awareness. Youngsters may not be all that familiar with suspenders and the resolution of what happens when Grandpa's suspenders lose their snap just as Grandma is kidnapped by crows could be much stronger. However, Christopher Santaro's lively illustrations make it perfectly clear that the story situation is meant to play with absurdity. 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. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry

K-Gr 2

This whimsical tale of an everyday hero has a rhyming text and lively illustrations. Grandpappy has superpowers when he "snippy snappies" his suspenders. He can work his magic to make breakfast or clean the house, or for bigger stuff. He can get the cows unstuck from the muck ("Boing-a-moing-a-moooo") and give a snap to get the mail train back on the track ("Boing-a-choing-a-chooooo"). Alas, his suspenders lose their elasticity just as Grandmammy needs to be rescued from some ambitious crows lifting her into the air. Despite his droopy suspenders, Grandpappy leaps to the rescue and promptly loses his trousers. "Smoochy-smacky-smoooooooooooooooo," his lightning-bolt-patterned bloomers have the same effect as his suspenders, and his lovely wife is saved. Plourde's text, which uses different fonts, sizes, and placements, works well once readers get the right cadence. Santoro's digital mixed-media illustrations animate the tale in a wonderful way. Together the cartoon and realistic elements add depth, detail, and humor to the tale.-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH

Kirkus Reviews
Remove tongue from cheek and flex it to get ready to trippingly read this story in rhyme that positively boings with silly sound effects. "Grandpappy snippy snappies / His suspenders all the day / Snippy-snappy-snoo / What those suspenders can do!" His zingy snap gets cows unstuck from muck, sends the sheriff's car off in the right direction and gets the derailed train back on track. But what happens when his suspenders lose their snippy-snappiness just when a flock of crows flies off with his honey poo and Grandmammy needs rescuing? He reveals his secret weapon (lightning-patterned undies). "Grandpappy's a hero / No suspenders in sight / He used his own pair of bloomers / To save his wife." Santoro's wildly exaggerated cartoons and the cleverly designed word composition echo the action and put the snap into this goofy tale. There's plenty of "suspension" of absurdity here.
