    5. I had to find a book that I could use along with a subject in class I was able to fit this book nicely into a lot of areas for class So, hopefully I can implement this book when I start teaching and that they enjoy it as much as I did, anyway This books is drawn beautifully It s dark not in the sense of spooky but it s not light and colorful typical of children books but it does use a lot of colors and is a nice little story Does not have a preachy tone to it which is nice There is a little mora [...]

    6. I know Tim I went to school with his brother, so I m admittedly biased But really, Tim s work is so unique not only the vivid artwork but the story lines They re not awash in the usual kid book goody goody sticky sweetness I really liked this I also recommend Frog Belly Rat Bone and anything new he comes out with

    7. Genre Fantasy picture bookCopyright 2008Thoughts The Wiggleskins clams get gathered by a stinky foot human who is going to eat them for dinner Edwin shucks his shell, winds up at the human s house, and saves the other Wiggleskins Fun book, although I wonder if kids ever connect talking animals in books to animals they eat for food

    8. What an odd yet endearing story The language is delightful and the illustrations are interesting to look at Can t see myself reading this than once, but I think lower elementary age kids would get a kick out of it.

    9. I love Timothy Basil Ering s art in such a big way, but he really shouldn t write his own storiesgood on concept, but he s not able to pull it off for the picture book audience They are always left with the, huh Not a good thing for such a big effort, IMO Do love the art, though.

    10. What a wonderfully quirky book Who knew a mollusc could be so endearing Cheer Edwin along, and all those other risk takers, who dare to stick their necks out and go against the current in seeking to experience our great big wide beautiful world

    11. Okay, this guy is rapidly becoming one of my favorite children s book author illustrators right now This one is so clever and sweet with that wonderful dark edge that Frog Belly Rat Bone has that s what I like with my optimism, a dash of dark

    12. I have to say I LOVED Edwin In the field of education, where we are sometimes hesitant to say what we think, I know there some out there who are willing to put their necks out for the sake of our children I think kids of all ages will enjoy Edwin s story.

    13. Timothy Ering is one of our greatest living artists today His imagination is unmatched, as are his characters.

    14. This is the kind of kids book that five stars are reserved for My highest recommendation Bravo for Edwin Wiggleskin and Tim Ering

    15. Incredible artwork The story is a familiar one a person who is different somehow saves the day The telling has a few moments that might be scary for young kiddos.

    16. Love this illustrator This book is cute, amusing, and I love the premise and the theme Edwin Wiggleskin will make you laugh, so it would be a fun read aloud.

    17. Fun picture book about taking chances The illustrations of the clams leaving their shells and holes are hilarious

    18. Wiggleskins are captured, all except one Edwin Can he save his family from becomming dinner Adorable and terrifying, all at the same time.

    19. First, the illustrations were a little too much for my 4YO Plus, the story lost her quite early I will try this again in a few years.

    20. Really charming I love the quirky artistic style and the story is great A new favorite for my collection.
