One in a series of humorous books about disgusting creatures, "The Slug" is a look at the land slug. It covers such topics as the slug's two pairs of tentacles, one pair for seeing, one pair for smelling (it can see you're a kid and smell like broccoli), its breathing hole (on the side of its head ), and its pretty gross mucous covering (in order to find a partner, the slug can follow another slug's mucous trail. True love ). Although silly and off-the-wall, "The Slug" contains real information that will tie in with curriculum.
