Momo and Snap Are Not Friends is a story about two different animals that happen to cross paths, and when they do they engage in a competition of sorts. They battle it out to see which one of them is more ferocious. Through several rounds, Momo the monkey and Snap the alligator go head to head testing their strength and their growls. But that’s not all, they also compete to see who is better at juggling, drawing, swimming, fishing and running. It’s a grueling competition that gets interrupted by a pack of hungry lions. But only Snap sees them coming. Thinking on his feet, Snap does the only thing he can think of. He runs in the opposite direction, but not before scooping up little Momo. And thus begins a warm friendship.
I love everything about Momo and Snap are NOT friends, it’s such a great story with two adorable characters. What I love the most about this picture book is the style in which it is written. There are no words, the entire story unfolds through pictures and sounds that Momo and Snap make. It’s a fun read, especially when read aloud!
Recommended for ages 3-8.
