One day a tiny water snail appears in Abby's fish tank.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

The writing in this is pretty terrible, and I thought at first that I'd stumbled across another dud. It doesn't work as a short story.

However, if it were illustrated throughout, it might make a passable picture book. At least, it would if all the grammar and punctuation errors were cleaned up.

The moral of the story is, I guess, to check your pond weeds carefully. That's about all I really got out of this one.

Plot: 1/5
Characters: 1/5

Writing & Editing: 1/5
Originality: 2/5

Enjoyment: 1/5

Overall Rating: 1.43 out of 5 ladybugs
