    Haha, this was a fun little picture book, I definitely liked the ending to it, that was a twist I didn't see coming. I was thinking something else would happen, but this ending is way more fun. Pretty nice illustrations/art as well.

    Cute book. Excellent art. The repeating stanza of the setting sun's location helps children guess what the Snorklum is scared of. My daughter liked it. However, I found the story a bit lifeless and mediocre. The animal victims didn't have distinct personalities, and the Snorklum was bland as a villain. Most irritating to me was that there were no repercussions for the Snorklum's behavior. He threatened to eat each animal he first captured, then stuffed in his pocket, but when he shrank, and the animals escaped, they merely laughed at him. Then he threatened them again. And they laughed. The end. He'll live to eat them again, I guess. But it was still a good book. Great for Halloween.

    I am in love with the illustrations in this book. Adorable and great detail, I could look at them for a long time. I believe a child could as well in a lap-read/read-alone. The story wasn't bad. I don't think I could get behind it well enough for a storytime, but I would enjoy reading it aloud in a lap-read to a preschool or younger school-age child.6/21/17 Used in S preschool theme. Did some voices with this, which made the ending much more fun. Though my Snorklum voice made my voice hurt a little. But the kids enjoyed the book well enough and I had fun reading.

    I love the illustrations in this book. Jane Chapman might be one of my favorite illustrators. The story was good, but I was hoping that the Snorklum would have a cuddly personality.

    An interesting twist on monsters I think the intention was to reassure children that monsters are afraid of things too. BUT we had major nightmares for week after this both of the snorklum and the idea that thinks can shrink in the dark because now my daughter isn't certain mummy and daddy will be able to see the scares. we never had monsters under the bed before but now they hide under everything. On saying that the illustrations are wonderful and if your child is the sort that laughs in the face of ghosts and ghouls then they will love this one.

    Both boys love this book and get a great deal of enjoyment out of following the scary snorklum (for he was a scary snorklum) on his journey home and both love how he gets outwitted by his supposed dinner.

    This as an okay book. The artwork is my kind of illustrations, though. I think the story is about bullies. I think bullies (like Snorklum) are just scared too and that is why the try to be scary. The friends team together to knock Snorklum off of his pedestal and realize that he is not so scary!

    A surprise ending awaits the readers. Wonder if the students would notice that Mole, Badger and Rabbit look just like their same name characters in Karma Wilson's Bear books.

    I can't resist a good monster book, and this makes that list. The scary snorklum meets - and plans to eat - animals on his way, but we soon find out that while scary, he might just be scared too.

    Pretty cute story, although I didn't think that it had the best storyline. I also thought the ending was a little bit sudden.
