Vernon Is On His Way (Picture Books)

Ages: 3 - 8Publisher: Roaring Brook Press


Vernon is a small yellow frog who is waiting and waiting. Apparently, he has been waiting for his friend, a snail, to wake up, come out of his shell
and give Vernon a ride. In this charming collection of “small” stories, readers are treated to other happenings with Vernon’s friends Skunk and Porcupine.

Utilizing soft outlines and large white spaces, author/illustrator Philip C. Stead depicts seemingly small events in the lives of three friends. The intentionally slow pace and design underscores the importance of taking time to notice – kindness, friendship and joy. A delightful antidote to a frenetic day.
