    Charmed by a Snake!

    Donna Shepherd has created another delightful character! Sully the snake is full of personality -- and musical talent! Unfortunately, he must give up singing when he develops a sore throat. It's a good thing he had lots of cute animal friends to help him through his difficulties. By the time he's ready to sing again, he's learned a wonderful lesson about friendship. Children will love this charming character and relate to his rhyming story. The colorful and lively illustrations add to the fun. They even include hidden hearts for kids to search out!

    S-s-s-snake has sore throat!

    This is the third book in the Topsy Tales trilogy. I must admit it is the best. Children will love this story of friendship and the illustrations by Kevin Collier are wonderfully colorful and humorous.

    Sully the singing snake has laryngitis. He is used to singing solo, but soon he and his friends are making beautiful music together.

    Delightful!

    I can't imagine any kid not falling in love with Donna Shepherd's delightful characters, especially a singing snake! The illustrations and lyrical rhymes are fun, sweet and will have kids begging, "Read it again!"

    Bright bouncy pictures, perfect s sounds, and bright bouncy text

    The bright bouncy pictures seem to jump out of the page in Donna Shepherd's Sully's Topsy Tale. There's a whole (and growing) series of Topsy Tales, and Sully, the protagonist of this one, is a snake who sings and scats like a sax. Don't know what "scat" means? Then read the back of the book, where various musical terms are explained, and there's even an endorsement by a speech pathologist! Filled with easy-to-read rhymes, a perfect sense of rhythm, zany pictures, and text full of the ubiquitous "s" sound-plus the odd delightfully tongue-twisting phrase to have the kids in stitches at the adults' mistakes-this is really a fine fun picture book. Simple words mean quick readers will learn to read along. A simple story has a quiet little lesson on taking risks and joining in. And the set-up-a singing snake with laryngitis-should amuse and appeal to kids-maybe even ease their sore throats.



    Disclosure: I read this as a judge in the Children's Picture Books section of the Dan Poynter Global eBook Awards.
