I had never heard of a SNU, but thanks to Brook's inventive imagination, it is now a household word in my family. The SNUS are a lovable band of wide-eyed creatures--unlike anything I've seen before.
"How to Catch a SNU" is a compassionate tale of two children who devise a clever plan to capture a SNU and keep it as a pet. The story is whimsical, while imparting a valuable message, as the SNUS, in time, teach the children an unexpected lesson in friendship.
I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations are lively and full of expression; the SNUS are absolutely adorable; and with its smooth-flowing verse, this quick-paced story is ideal for a broad age range.
