Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Slinkie wants to enter the Water Creek Race, but is taunted by other entrants because he is just a snail "and snails move slow." With a line-up of contestants like Jack, the frog, Hiphoppity, the rabbit, Cricket, and Hugo, the bullfrog, Slinkie feels discouraged; but his friend Sandy urges him to believe in himself and do his best. Slinkie fails to notice passing the finish line, heads into foreign territory and becomes lost. Along the way he meets Liz the ladybug, Mr. Lipton the wise caterpillar, and other residents of Creekwood such as Miss Leopold the forgetful butterfly, and Whimsical, the guardian-angel tree. In the meantime, Slinkie's fellow racers have realized that he has "gone missing," and they proceed to search for him. Even after having made fun of him, they are concerned about his welfare and are dedicated to finding him. Slinkie gets advice about being brave in the face of fear and the others have a variety of learning experiences while searching for him. When they are all finally reunited, there are apologies for the earlier teasing and pronouncements of courage in the face of fear as well as a resolution to remain friends. The text of this self-published title is accompanied by crayon and colored-pencil drawings that are "child-like" to the eye. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan

    Slinkie the Courageous Snail

    This is a good book. The book is about courage and to believe in yourself. A very positive subject for school age children or anyone. The author captures the essence of the subject of teasing/bully. How a teaser/bully changed for the better, and the beginning of a new friendship. There are wonderful characters. Illustrations are well drawn with vibrant colors. Recommend for any school library.

    Slinkie the Courageous Snail

    I really like Slinkie the Courageous Snail. My favorite character is Slinkie, he reminded me of a time when I was in kindergarden when I was trying to find my way back to my classroom when I noticed that the halls looked the same. I felt the same way Slinkie did when he got lost in the woods. I think this book is perfect for anyone who is feeling a little lost at times.. Ms. Buzz the butterfly remined me of my first grade teacher Mrs. McCoy she was the best teacher I ever had. It perked me up when I read it and I highly recommened it to anyone who likes bright colors and insects.
