Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sparrow, spider, stink bug and several others are all screaming warnings at an unsuspecting slug.But the slug calmly continues slithering its way up a highly suspect slope. Should the show-off listen? Why is everyone screaming at the slug?

From the creators of the hilarious Four Famished Foxes and Fosdyke comes another tongue-twisting alliterative adventure. Children will love sleuthing out the hidden "S'" in Henry Cole's sumptuous illustrations. And a shocking surprise ending will inflict children with unstoppable laughs!

Synopsis:

"Stop!"
screamed a sparrow.

"Save him!"
shrieked a spider.
"Silly,"
sighed a swallowtail.

Smirking and self-important, the slug keeps slithering his way up a highly suspect slope. Will the slug stop? Are the sparrow, the spider, and the swallowtail simply trying to sabotage the slug's progress? Why is everyone screaming at the slug?

Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole have created another alliterative tale that will have children snorting out loud at the surprise ending for this very smug slug.
