The Journey of the Noble Gnarble by Daniel Errico
Open your imagination and take a magical tour of the sea with the small gnarble...
Emerald Book Company sent me an ARC of this book, and it's the most precious thing. The book was published this month, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.
Tiffany Turrill has had great fun creating monsters of the deep and the minis of the deep in vibrant colors and with big teeth. Your child won't want to miss any of this fishy characters because they are all named magical weird names, and they are silly looking.
The tale itself is simple. The gnarble left his cozy bed on the ocean floor and sets out seeking a glimpse of the sky. The way is full of danger, he needs others to help him journey so high, and several fish along the way would like to have him as a little appetizer...
The story is fun, the illustrations are bright and colorful and the names of the fish are tongue twisters. What more could you want for a great read aloud book? This would also make a great bedtime story. Why not check it out and get yourself a copy?
Here's a link where you can meet the gnarble: Meet Gnarble
