Reviews

Review by: Booklist Magazine - November 15, 2015
"This first entry in what appears to be a new series about three dissimilar friends is given a workmanlike reading by Gilbert. Listening underlines how minimalist the text really is and how much of the book is actually conveyed by Renata Liwska’s charming, soft-focus illustrations. Still, the recorded version makes use of auditory cues to underline the animals’ very different personalities: impulsive Boom’s lines are frequently accompanied by a kettle drum; hesitant Twitty is given a squeaky-string backdrop; and Snot slides along on a crystalline tinkle. The intermittent music is supplemented by appropriately placed but not intrusive sound effects: the whoosh of wind and rain as a storm arrives and the contented, snuffling snores of the tired companions when day is done. Fans of this gentle trio will undoubtedly look forward to listening to their further adventures."
Review by: AudioFile Magazine - October 30, 2015
Narrator Tavia Gilbert animates three unusual friends in a performance that is integrated seamlessly with accompanying music and sound effects. It isn't every day that a bear, a bird, and a snail share a friendship, and it isn't every day that a thunderstorm causes such uproar. Gilbert crafts a voice for each animal that is echoed in the signature music for each creature--a gentle boom for Boom, a high-pitched trill for Twitty, and an ever-changing melody for Snot. Gilbert narrates at a leisurely pace and provides long pauses for listeners to set each scene in their minds. While the storm itself can be appreciated from the audiobook, young listeners who have the accompanying print version in hand will find additional story details in the illustrations.
Review by: School Library Journal - September 1, 2015
"Boom the bear, Twitty the bird, and Snot the snail seem an unlikely set of friends. Indeed, each is quite different. Boom wants to do things. Twitty is comfortable in her nest, with her yarn and crochet hook. Snot enjoys whatever life throws at her. When their day together turns from sun to rain, each handles the situation in his or her own way. Tavia Gilbert reads this sweet, simple story accompanied by light music and plenty of understated background noises. Listeners will want to follow along in the accompanying book because Renata Liwska’s subtle and soft illustrations reveal much about the characters’ personalities that is not conveyed in the text. VERDICT This read-along set is perfect for beginning readers who will giggle at the names and, perhaps, enjoy the message that all friends do not have to be the same."
