I learned today that Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator is reviewed in the July/August issue of the Horn Book magazine.
Here is a brief excerpt: “The pacing of the spare text moves, appropriately, at a snail’s pace, conveying with a phrase or sentence per page the wolfsnail’s deliberate and single-minded focus on food. Each step is illustrated with an exceptional close-up photograph that brings into sharp focus the glistening snail body, the ridges of its shell, and every nook and cranny of the hosta leaves on which the attack occurs.”
I appreciate the attention the book is getting in the review outlets. It will help get copies into public and school libraries. My friends in the marketing department at Boyds Mills Press have been helping me get excerpts of the reviews posted on the book’s Amazon page.
