ALA Booklist
In this return of Snail and Worm, each of the three short chapters conveys an important message that is covered in humor and sprayed withsilly. In the first chapter, Snail "grows" wings when a feather lands on Snail's shell. Worm is sad because his best friend is going to fly away; Snail had not thought about that part and now Snail is sad. A lovely full spread is dedicated to the two friends just feeling sad moment that seems to say that it's all right to just be sad sometimes. Thankfully, the feather flies off without Snail and relief is felt by both friends. This story line, like all the other two stories, is captured in short, delightful sentences and illustrations that support early readers. The pencil illustrations, done with mixed-media collage in a soft palette, balance and highlight the joyful narrative. Themes of acceptance, self-love, and appreciation make this an excellent choice for early readers or a one-on-one storybook for older pre-readers.

The invertebrate buddies of Snail & Worm return in another series of three brief and entertaining stories: "Snail's Wings," "The Mirror," and "Snail Is Sad." The all-dialogue text--color coded by creature to support new readers--features easy-to-read sentences with subtle repetition. The clean illustrations manage to bring great variety to a limited setting (a small patch of ground).
Kirkus Reviews
Three funny stories about two fast friends.Snail and Worm return in a second picture book about their friendship in this follow-up to Snail & Worm (2016). In the three short stories, they first fret over Snail's new wings (a feather that fell onto its shell); then they gaze in wonder at what they think is a mirror with their reflections (it's a penny with Lincoln's profile); and finally, Worm assures Snail that its shell is perfectly fine just the way it is. While some of the humor is predicated on readers knowing more than the characters do, the effect isn't mean-spirited. The friends' banter is light and humorous, and their foibles and misunderstandings will provoke laughter as surely as the expressive, multimedia cartoon illustrations will. Snail's eyestalks, in particular, work overtime to convey emotion. The text is conveyed entirely in dialogue, printed in color-coded type to distinguish the speaker; Snail's is brown, while Worm's is lavender. This device occasionally varies when the type is set against a dark color. Printing it in white renders it legible, but readers dependent on the color coding will need to work to use text placement to identify the speaker. This design foible marks the book for fairly sophisticated emergent readers. Again! Again! (Picture book/early reader. 4-7)
