KIRKUS REVIEW

The grass is always greener...."" is the theme of this diminutive dramatization of the old adage as two snails, one white, the other brown, trade their ""homes"", acquiring a two tone effect, very chic, but not to their liking, so they trade back again and are satisfied. The format is the pinpoint of appeal here. The text could not be simpler, the snails speak in petite cursive language, and the pictures are soft and sweet.
