Snitch & Sneer: Fairy Tale Crashers Hit the Hood
Welcome to the new book series by Julia Dweck. This one is a bit different from her normal – write in Rhyme. This series of book – written in comic book style – is fun, inviting, invigorated and helps to encourage children to read. Isn’t that the most important thing? In their first adventure, Snitch & Sneer crash Little Red Riding Hood. Yep, you heard me right. This book is filled with slapstick humor – and a new and inviting look at the same old fairy tale.
I found this new comic book style a bit more difficult to read to the kids. It just didn’t really flow. Typically, Julia Dweck Books are written in rhyme, so it’s an almost lyrical experience. This isn’t like that – not that it’s bad. It’s just – different.
As typical with all of Julia Dweck books, the illustrations pop! Also, don’t forget to look in the back of the book for some fun activities. Your children can even write to Snitch & Sneer themselves!
All in all, a good positive book that instills a love for reading in young children!
