Verdi is a great example of a fantasy book, because snakes are talking and interacting, but people of all ages can relate to Verdi when they go through or reflect on stages in their life in which they were growing up or changing. For example, Verdi has to accept growing up when it skin color changes from yellow to green. Verdi is the protagonist and becomes round by the end of the story, as he ages (changes to green) and realizes that he must change and grow and that each stage of life is important. He learned from his experiences and was thus able to relate to each of the characters he encountered more.

The pictures - especially the colors - in this book are beautiful. But what I really love is the thought of the snake flinging himself end over end through the air. It's still a hit with my 7-year-old, too.

This is one of a series of wonderful books that highlight species that are often disdained or feared.  A delightful tale with excellent illustrations that keep you coming back to re-read the book with your children.  In the back is a page of information about the featured animal that is very interesting.  Waiting for the next book!  Keep writing, Ms Cannon!

My 4 year old son loves this book. We checked it out last year from the library for the first time. Everytime he sees it he wants me to read it to him. We checked it out so many times, that he wanted Santa to bring him the book for his very own.

I think this is an excellent book for growing children! It teaches them that it is ok to be different.
