A Powerful & Compelling
Meritt delivers a superb debut.
This award winning and one of a kind book for children does more than just tell the story of Eli the Snazzleraffer and the importance of true friendship. It positively reinforces the lessons of looking beyond physical appearances and discovering the true beauty within others.
Beautifully illustrated and containing interactive coloring pages this book has become a favorite of parents and teachers as much as it has for its young readers.
Friendship is an ever popular theme in children’s books and tales like Eli The Snazzleraffer have a very special place in the genre. It’s one that is especially fun to read out loud with Robert Agnello’s rhyming prose tripping of the tongue whilst the combined talents of J.R Maltese and Amia Jones bring a fresh and wholly original character to life. Friendship connects and enriches our lives and Agnello’s story is perfectly pitched at young readers who are beginning to learn the value of friendships and how to interact with others their age. The illustrations that accompany Agnello’s prose are funny, heartfelt and honest and yet they convey an extraordinary amount of emotion whilst the message Agnello conveys is both sensitive and perfectly pitched for his young audience. On this level, there is a life lesson that encourages children to develop positive social skills but equally as important it encourages them to communicate and be kind.
A wonderful heartwarming story which is perfect for bedtime reading, Eli The Snazzleraffer is highly recommended.
