"You forgot the mail?!?!"
The king yelled at the snail.
But the snail stayed as calm as could be.
He was not afraid of the king, you see.
He knew where the gift was; he knew what to do.
The monsters learned that patience pays off too.
We are all familiar with the phenomenon of children wanting everything "here and now". This story describes just such a situation. I hope you and your children will enjoy it and learn from it.
This book good for beginner readers - and bedtime story
This book was okay the illustrations to me were not the best. K said the monster's didn't look right and that the king looked like a girl monster, A thought the monsters were too scary for her.
K and I both thought it was funny how the king didn't realize that a snail carries their home on their back which everyone should know.
I did like the lesson that was portrayed as you should listen before you just start getting upset. The lesson is something that all children should learn.
The book is rather short so it is good for a bedtime read.
