Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Such a succulent slug. . .

A self-assured slug slinks up a suspicious sloping surface. Scoffing at shouts of "Stop!" from spectators, the smug slug finally reaches the summit. Is he in for a shocking surprise?

In this companion to the popular Four Famished Foxes and Fosdyke, Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole have created another alliterative adventure that will leave kids laughing out loud.

"This slug is so appealing and full of personality that it will certainly garner sympathy. The cover alone is enough to get readers to select this book." (Starred review)

--School Library Journal

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:

A self-assured slug slithers up a suspicious slope. A sparrow, spider, stink bug, and several other spectators shout "Stop!" But this slug is smug, and heeds not his companions' caution. He'll wish he had when he sees the shocking surprise that awaits him at the summit! 1997 Notable Children's Book in the Language Arts; "School Library Journal". Best Books of 1996.

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.
