Review
Preschool-Grade 1 Marigold the snail is living a happy life—that is, until her little sister Daisy is born. Not only are their parents thrilled with Daisy, but all the neighborhood creatures think she is adorable. Daisy’s cuteness seems “to mesmerize everyone.” Marigold, however, is not impressed. Her dad encourages her to be patient and understanding. When Daisy breaks Marigold’s favorite toy, her mother says Daisy doesn’t mean any harm. Marigold decides the only explanation is that Daisy is an evil genius, dedicated to following Marigold everywhere and being annoying. Delicate watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations use simple backgrounds and plenty of white space to focus attention on the snail sisters. From Marigold’s bulbous eyes rolling and Daisy’s perky shell bow, their personalities humorously are showcased. When Daisy defends Marigold against an insulting bee, however, Marigold changes her mind about her sister. Just in time, since the book ends with the addition of twin brothers to the family. A classic story of sibling rivalry, made fresh by miniature mollusks. -- Whitehurst, Lucinda (Reviewed 2/1/2018) (Booklist, vol 114, number 11, p61)
