Elias Zapple's Book of Slugs by Elias Zapple is an adorable book that has a lot of slug facts. Young readers can meet slugs named Steve, Selina, Gina, and Akira the Ninja Slug and many more. The author's love for slugs and his sense of humor, the slug recipes, and how entertaining the slugs can be take readers right into the amazing world of slugs. The book will help readers discover why slugs are magnificent creatures and the author's words will get readers fascinated by slugs.
I found the book funny and delightful and it will definitely put a smile on the faces of readers. They will start looking at slugs in a different way after reading this book. The illustrations complement the author's words beautifully and also connect well with readers. It's an excellent book for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Parents and grandparents can also use it as a good bedtime storybook as it is helpful in making kids more imaginative and creative. Slug facts and the handy hints for cooking make the book refreshingly original.
The book gives extensive knowledge about slugs in a fun and entertaining way with its amusing illustrations. Slug Pie, Slug Juice and Slug Cereal will make readers want to try them out. I found the slug facts informative and the quiz towards the end of the book will help readers reflect on what they have read.
