Some Smug Slug by Pamela Duncan Edwards, Henry Cole, Henry Cole

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 JournalA 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!
