Review:

Sluggy Slug won't budge, not even when lured with a pink lollipop. That pretty much sums up the plot of this small, charming, square book, but Chris Raschka's simple brushstrokes speak a thousand words. Nobody could make a recalcitrant slug seem as vivacious as the creator of the Caldecott Honor book Yo! Yes? and Like Likes Like. Designed for children just learning to read, the Thingy Thing books all reinforce simple sounds and word repetition. Don't miss the rest of the books in the series: Wormy Worm, Moosey Moose, and Whaley Whale. Kids will adore these wonderfully absurd tributes to creatures great and small, but adults may like them even more. (Preschool to beginning readers) --Karin Snelson

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-Moosey Moose (he actually looks more like a bull) is having a tantrum because he wants his long pants. Sluggy Slug just won't go, and Whaley Whale hides under an upholstered chair. Wormy Worm "wiggles and woggles" to such a degree that it's difficult to see "Which end is front" and "Which end is back." Using muted shades of earth-tone colors, Raschka fills in his thick black-line drawings with broad brush strokes. On the back covers the publisher states, "The THINGY THINGS series teaches young children to read using simple sounds paired with easy word repetitions." Unfortunately, the illustrations don't always support the text. For example, one spread features a picture of stubborn Moosey Moose opposite the words: "His long pants." Readers will need some decoding skills or an excellent sight vocabulary to be able to read them. While the format is just right for little hands and the sometimes whimsical illustrations are not completely without child appeal, these titles lack the staying power of Raschka's earlier work.
