Review this Book

Norman Snodgrass Saves the Green Planet


Meet Norman. Clumsy and overweight, he spends most of his time trying to avoid being teased by his Poggle classmates. No one would ever have him pegged as a hero. Until now.

When he loses the school pet, Norman reluctantly sets off to find Spong inside the strange Green Planet where rocks move and insects do the weirdest things. Along the way, he meets a mysterious Professor and discovers that deadly perils threaten his world. And it’s not long before this simple rescue mission turns into a dangerous and deadly adventure to protect the entire planet...

Will Norman save the day?

That's Books

We absolutely loved this book! Our daughters cannot get enough of the silly humor inside this novel! Will be read over and over again at our home!

Norman Snodgrass saves the Green Planet by Sue Bough. One of the many joys of reading 1000 books in 1000 days has come from friends who have become authors and have kindly asked me to read their books. So, I have been delighted with the books by David Cassidy, Alun Leppitt, Richard Storry and others. Today, my daughter Emma's and son-in-law Mike's friend sent me her first book, and its wonderful. I could not help imagining seeing the world Sue has created on TV or cinema in animated form. The Green Planet may be different to our own, but there are enough parallels to see there are more lines of connection than you first realise. It's got a good plot which taps into children's concerns for the environment, well-developed quirky and memorable characters, with nice, gentle touches of humour. I particularly liked the creative use of acronyms. Norman may be an unlikely hero - clumsy, overweight and always falling over - but I hope to see more of him and I anticipate this book being the first of many. A delight and a joy.
