Booklist Review

Gr. 1. This easy reader is for those just getting started. The word count is small and the sentences are short, yet Spohn engages new readers with a snappy, if slight, story that features two appealing characters. Turtle wears a blue hat and white gloves, and carries a sign. He is a crossing guard. Snake wears an apron and a tall hat, and holds a spoon with his tail. He is a chef. Spohn shows how they spend their day in the childlike illustrations executed in bright watercolor and pen. After work, it's time to eat the pizza that Snake has so carefully prepared from a ball of dough. This simple book in the Viking Easy-to-read series will give kids a feeling of accomplishment--and a few chuckles as well. (Reviewed March 15, 1999)0670882585Ilene Cooper


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-A humorous look at an ordinary day in the lives of two reptilian neighbors. Turtle directs traffic on a busy street while Snake works at a pizza parlor. Both animals are skilled at their work but momentary lapses lead to minor accidents: Turtle is splashed by a bicyclist when he looks the other way and Snake ends up covered with dough when he gives an energetic display of his pie-spinning abilities. The simple text is filled with short, repetitive words and sentences that many beginning readers will be able to master quickly. The full-color illustrations, set off by white space and bold, black font, provide visual clues to the story. Another charming duo from the author of Dog and Cat Shake a Leg (1996) and Dog and Cat Make a Splash (1997, both Viking).-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
