Have You Ever Seen a Sneep?

Tasha Pym; Pictures by Joel Stewart

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

Pity the boy narrating this book! He’s just trying to enjoy a day out, but every time his back is turned, the Sneep and its mischievous friends sneak up and spoil his fun. From one hairraising surprise to the next, the boy explains his monster troubles to us. And when he finds out that we aren’t harried by Grullocks and Floons and their ilk, he has a big favor to ask.

This hilarious story, illustrated with whimsical and witty style, features five naughty creatures and one adorable hero.

REVIEWS

Praise for Have You Ever Seen a Sneep?

Perfectly paced and quietly dramatic, this fanciful tale of monsters run amok can be used with groups as well as for one-on-one sharing.” —School Library Journal

“A good choice for story hours.” —Booklist

“Joel Stewart's world is charmingly off-kilter and gently strange. I had never seen anyone like his Addis Berner Bear before, and I had certainly never seen a Sneep. I’m grateful Joel brought them to life, and you will be too.” —Brian Selznick, winner of the Caldecott Medal for THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET
