From the Back Cover
screamed a sparrow.
shrieked a spider.
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.

Well, I live in Slugland &; I know why I scream at slugs as they eat my lettuce & lupines, so I had to pick up this book & find out what Pamela Duncan Edwards & Henry Cole had in store for me!
This is a story of pride coming before a fall & most of all an almost tongue-twisting tale of slithering, slimey suspense.
Wonderful stuff to get your esses in shape! ...

The alliteration is great, and a wonderful way to introduce your kid TO alliteration. And the artwork is well down. However, because every sentence had to be packed with as many s- words as possible, some of the statements are a bit... non sequitur-ish. I don't think, for example, that "silly" is the best word to describe the slug's ascent, although one of the other animals seems to think so.
Still, all told, it's a very good book with a funny twist ending.
