Ordinary Oscar by Laura Adkins

This post nominated the Oak Brook Public Library Blog for the 2012 Fascination Awards! Please see the the "Book Reviews" tab for other books I have recently reviewed. 

Oscar the snail doesn't like being ordinary. He dreams of being extraordinary. He's tired of his boring coloring and his mundane routine. With the help of a wise old snail and a little magic from the Fairy Godsnail, his wishes have come true! Does Oscar's dream of being famous really make him happy? Read the book Ordinary Oscar by Laura Adkins to find out. Children will love the imaginative and bold illustrations of Sam Hearn and be mesmerized by the cute-as-a-button writing style of Laura Adkins.
