This hilarious read-aloud picture book tells a cautionary tells about a slug who must climb a slippery slope, in spite of the animals who are trying to stop him.

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 an alliterative tale that will have children snorting out loud at the surprise ending for this very smug slug. Detailed illustrations include a hidden "S" on every page.
