Praise

PRAISE FOR The Slug:

“Considered to be one of the garden’s more unappealing creatures, the slug is an uncommon subject in the world of bug and insect books, hence making this read all the more interesting … Readers will find the humorous cartoons to be a refreshing alternative to the photographs commonly found in non-fiction books. These pictures, paired with simple facts, make this book suitable for early readers, and could ease the transition into non-fiction for children who are reluctant to explore the genre. It is also recommended for readers who are ready to start exploring simple chapter books. The Slug would be a welcome addition to both public and school library collections.” – Deakin Review of Children’s Literature

“The slug is one ugly bug. It is a disgusting critter and thus fits perfectly as the fourth entry in the Disgusting Critters series… In this irreverent, humorous, minimalist (both in text and use of colors) introduction to the slug…. The cartoonlike illustrations and text bubbles give the slug personality, while varied font sizes and styles provide the information…. a great, fun way to engage readers and share giggles.” – Booklist
