    This adorable book addresses a common parenting woe: early risers! Cheerful watercolor, gouache, and ink illustrations reveal clever details of snail life such as playing soccer with rollie-pollies and how snails take showers. Perfect book for ages 2-6.

    So cute!!! I love snails and they were my favorite bug as a child. This book was cute and had snail facts in the front and back covers.

    Snippet the snail's days are busy with drawing (snail tracks), playing ball (with rolly pollies), and piggy back rides on his parents' shell. When he wakes early in the morning, he's ready for action, but the rest of his family is fast asleep. Snippet and his friends try a host of things to wake up the family. Cute and charming!

    Snails with patchwork quilt shells! I LOVE snails and may be one of the few people on earth who do, but aside from that, this is a thoughtful story of an early riser who is trying to entice his family to wake up and play with him!

    How can snails be so darn adorable? Watercolor illustrations and cute narration make this a sweet story about a young snail waking his family up to play.

    I can totally relate to the little snail who gets up early. Wish I'd had this when I had my own early risers.

    Snippet the Early Riser is about a snail who likes to get up early, while the rest of his family does not. When he wakes and wants to play, Snippet tries a number of ways to wake up his family (with the help of a few friends), but does not succeed until he gets an idea from watching Caterpillar munching on a leaf. Murguia's blend of ink and water colors creates a wonderful mixture of sharp lines with soft hues. Most pages contain both large and small illustrations interspersed with text, making the action fast paced and immediate throughout. It is also incredible how expressive the characters can be with just three dots for eyes and a mouth. A fun, creative book and highly recommended both for independent readers and as a read-aloud.

    Cute! I love a story about a snail. Why? Why not!?! There aren't that many stories about snails, at least not that I can think of off the top of my head. A little snail named Snippet wakes up early one morning and just wants his family to get up too so they can play with him. His family is much too sleepy, but his bug friends come up with a plan to help Snippet out. If you have an "early riser" or even a snail in your household, this would be a fun book to share! If nothing else, it would be a great reason to bust out a cute snail craft!

    Snippet is super cute, although there's not a lot of content in the book. He wants to wake his family up early, but they don't respond to being jumped on or yelled at, so he makes them breakfast in bed then everyone gets up to play. I'd probably love this book, except in this version Snippet falls asleep early because he got up so early. Whereas my sad reality is that my little guy wakes up before 6 and doesn't get tired. Ever. He needs so much less sleep than me it is a nightmare.So adorable yes, accurate no.

    Watercolor, gouache and ink illustrations show the daily activities that Snippet the snail enjoys. Though he's a pretty typical snail he isn't on the same sleep schedule as his family and tries everything he can think of to rouse his loved ones. Enlisting the help of his friends he accomplishes his goal, but before long turns tires and turns in.Humorous with illustrations that perfectly complement the text. I really liked the unique designs of each snail's shell and the way that Snippet's bug friends volunteered their specialized abilities to help wake his family.

    I picked this one up because I love books about snails. Honestly I liked the illustrations more than the story. Snippet is a very energetic snail, pretty much like a normal under 7 year old and likes to play soccer, draw, and get piggyback rides. Like small children, he wakes up way earlier than his parents and sister and does everything in his power to wake them up so they can all play together. Recommended for ages 3-6, 3 stars.

    Snippet is a very mischeivious little snail that does all he can to get his family involved in playing with him, but they just do not want to get out of bed. Snippet gets many of his friends involved as he tries to spur his family out of bed. This is a fun little story that many young children may be able to relate to as they wait eagerly for their parents and syblings to get out of bed each day. The illustrations do a fantastic job of supporting and adding detail to the plot of the story.

    Snippet is an appealing character whose early rising places him out of step with the rest of his family. This snail starts on a problem solving quest which ends in success. He also reminds all of us about differences. An appealing character who teaches universal themes in a concise story and extending illustrations, Snippet is a fun book to have in the collection.

    Those are the cutest illustrated snails I've ever seen. And Snippet is fabulous. I love his attempts to wake up his family. I love how the other bugs try to help. And I found the ending to be funny and true-to-life. Could work in a preschool storytime, though a few references would be over their heads. But they might still enjoy it. Worth considering for the summer--garden theme.

    Darling pen and watercolor illustrations almost make me like snails! Snippet, unlike the rest of his family, is an early riser. He persistently tries to rouse his family with help from friends in hopes of finding someone to play with. Charming, especially if you have your own early riser.

    The art is cute and the story is cute. I'm not sure I would have really liked it for my kids though when they were little since I wouldn't have wanted them to get any ideas about waking me up early and how to do it. :}

    Snippet is the only early riser in the snail clan, but he and his critter friends have lots of ideas to wake up his snoozing family. Illustrations in watercolor, goache, and ink.

    Snippet reminds me that I am not ready for children...the cats wake up early enough. But I do like that he provides breakfast in bed.
