Gluey: A Snail Tale Reviews
I bought it without cracking the cover. It was love at first sight. I love these two and their other collaborations (like Olive, the Other Reindeer and Penguin Dreams) and I super love snails so it was a no-brainer to buy it.Unfortunately, I've read it twice to my nieces and other than the fact that it was too wordy and confusing for them, plot-wise, I don't remember anything else. Like anything that happened in it or what the characters were like. I love the cover, though. I just like their design aesthetic and the colors on this one are especially pretty.

3.5- Cute story about friendship and helping others.
Gluey is a carpenter snail who lives on top of a charming little house, which he owns and takes care of. One day, a lonely rabbit named Celerina discovers the house and moves right in. She breaks one of her favorite vases and is amazed to discover it fixed the next day. Gluey starts fixing all her broken things, but she thinks it is magic and no one believes her when she tells them. So she decides to invite all her friends to a party at the house. Gluey finally manages to introduce himself to Celerina and she thinks he is a pest and hurls him into the meadow. He cracks his shell and discovers the Wee people, who not only help him repair his shell but reveal the truth about his house. Celerina's party gets out of hand and the house and all her things end up getting broken, but with a little magic, they live happily ever after. Honestly, I would probably give this book 2 stars for the story but I rather liked the quirky illustrations, so it gets an extra one. Recommended for ages 4-7, 3 stars.
I had no idea that J Otto Seibold wrote (or co-wrote) an books other than Mr Lunch and Olive and I was thrilled to find out that Gluey exists. It's a super cute and the pictures are wonderful and now I'm going to check to see if Seibold has written any other children's books.
I didn't really like the way the bunny acted in this story and it immediately turned me off from liking it. I'm also not a huge fan of the illustrations.
