"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.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2?A slug senses a slope and saunters on up, against the advice of a sparrow, a spider, and a skink, among others, and meets with a sudden, spontaneous demise. Such is the life of a slug told with a multitude of common and not so common "S" words (shantung). The bold-faced text is short but not simple. "Seldom swerving or straggling or swaying or skewing, the smug slug shambled on." Despite this boggle of words, youngsters will likely continue reading, having been caught up in this snaillike mollusk's serendipitous fate. Realistically detailed, earth-toned illustrations focus attention on each scene. Varied animals' perspectives reign throughout while the bumpy surface that the slug climbs remains a mystery until the end. In addition to the animals named in the text, other "S" creatures are shown. Plus, to ensure close scrutiny and multiple readings, an "S" shape has been hidden in each picture. This slug is so appealing and full of personality that it will certainly garner sympathy. The cover alone, where the slug's expression is indeed smug, is enough to get readers to select this book.?Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
