Snowball and The Missing Apple | Book Review

Hey guys! Today I’m back for a little book review of Snowball and the Missing Apple by Amie Woleslagle – it’s such a sweet little book, and the illustrations are so adorable!

Ok, can we first just mention two things: 1) This book is about an adorable bunny and 2) The illustrations are absolutely adorable.

Alright, let’s get into it!

My Thoughts:

This book was absolutely adorable. I loved the illustrations. This would be a cute gift for a baby shower, or for a younger sibling.

I especially like the simplicity of it. It has such a simple vibe, but it still feels cutesy.

About The Book:

Snowball loves apples. When his apple goes missing, he knows that he must find who took it. A charming children’s book with funny pictures, an engaging message, and animals, perfect for early readers or to read aloud to your 2-5 year old.

Interview:

I interviewed Amie with some writing/bookish questions. I hope you guys enjoy getting to know her better – I certainly did.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing seriously since I was twelve, though I’ve been “writing” my whole life.  Before I could actually write, I would scribble lines in notebooks and tell my brother they were stories.  You can bet I was crushed once my brother began to read, and he told me they were no such thing.

Have you written any other books?

Yes!  I’ve written quite a few books.  I was about to say this was the only children’s picture book, but I stand corrected.  I’ve written quite a few of those in the past as well. 😂

Who is one of your writing inspirations?

Only one of them?  Oh dear…Um, mostly I’m inspired to write by my other writing friends, but if you mean young authors, I’d say Kellyn Roth, C.R.Hedgcock, and Cecelia Schmidt.  

What is your favorite book?

I have so many favorite books, that I’ve had to chose one book that I want everyone to read, instead of just a favorite because…Okay, this is a favorite.  “The Wide Wide World” by Susan Warner is one of the best books I’ve ever read.  I love it.

Who inspired you to first start writing?

That, my dear, is a very good question.  One that I don’t think I have an answer to.  I’ve been writing things down for as long as I can remember.  I will say, though, that one thing that inspired me to start writing was a really hard time in my life, and I learned that writing was like therapy for me.  I helped me calm my emotions, and as I’ve written more and more, I’ve been able to express my emotions through my writing.  (One of my best friends, Elizabeth, was truly the person that helped me finish my first full length novel.  She expected a chapter of the story with each letter I sent her, and so that made me keep writing.)

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging for a year and some change.  

What are you hoping to accomplish through your writing career?

That’s a really good question.  As I publish other books, I really would like to make people stop and think with my books, but with Snowball, I just want it to cause happy shrieks of laughter in different houses.  (I love kids, especially making kids happy.) 

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I don’t know if I have a favorite thing about writing.  It’s just something I love in it’s totality.  

What’s your least favorite thing about writing?

Being patient and finishing a story, LOL.  I like being fast about everything, and sometimes writing and editing take FOREVER.  

About the author:

Amie is a wild, crazy writer who is either daydreaming or talking a hundred miles an hour.  When she is not doing those two things, she is probably reading or jamming on one of the four instruments she plays.  Writing is her overwhelming passion, but she is also passionate about horses, music, acting, photography, blogging, and living life to glorify her Creator and Lord.  She is the second oldest of seven children and enjoys being dramatic with her four sisters. Whether it is in Amie’s writing or in her words, she enjoys making people laughing.
