Sinopsis: Ordinary Oscar is a little snail who lives in an ordinary garden full of ordinary leaves. But Oscar longs for a life less ordinary. He wants to be different. He wants to be ...FAMOUS. This hilarious tale about the ups and downs of celebrity is anything but ordinary.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—Oscar Slimeglider is an unhappy snail, "tired of sleeping all day....fed up with eating all night....bored with being greenish-grayish-brownish." He dreams of being famous, so he consults the Wise Old Snail, who says that Oscar is going to need some magic to be a star, since he has no talents. The Fairy Godsnail grants him three wishes. He asks to be beautiful, but that makes him appetizing to a hungry bird. He requests that he be bigger than the bird, but he ends up bigger than "six buses glued together" and everyone is afraid of him. His last wish is to be ordinary again and return to his old life. Oscar finds that he can be famous by doing something heroic to help another creature. Children will be delighted by the exuberant illustrations. The narrative is less stimulating than the artwork, but the message is clear. This thin story could be used as a discussion-starter about what makes people heroes, combined with books about individuals whose fame derives from their inner values and leadership.—Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME
