Praise for Escargot and the Search for Spring
“Escargot tires of winter and searches for signs of spring . . . Hanson’s gentle watercolors bring to life a charming verdant landscape. Equal parts insecure and boastful, Escargot embodies the roller coaster of emotions that many youngsters feel on any given day. Not to fear: Flowers are finally found and friendships are formed, but the steady, slimy path of chatty dialogue is, as usual, magnifique.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Young children will get a kick out of Escargot’s fourth story and may even learn a few of the French words scattered throughout Escargot’s monologue.” —School Library Journal
