KIRKUS REVIEW

paper 0-14-130270-4 In this breezy entry in the Easy-to-Read series, Turtle and Snake rise from their different beds and go to work, the former as a crossing guard, the latter in a pizza parlor. Spohn (Dog and Cat Make a Splash, 1997, etc.) sticks to short, sometimes repetitive sentences and phrases, and keeps the art simple and uncluttered. The plots involving the two friends are very basic, building to twin climaxes. After work, the friends unwind over a pizza and walk home. It’s a good discussion starter on the theme of work, and children will chuckle over Snake’s “no hands” pizza technique. (Picture book. 4-6)
