Pres-Grade 2–Having a pal like Slug can be too much of a good thing. The big orange creature shows up everywhere, intruding on all of his friends activities, even inviting himself for dinner and a sleepover. Finally the child screams, Hes ANNOYING….IM SICK OF HIM! Slug, overhearing the outburst, slinks away. The boy soon feels lonely, but after an apology, all ends well. This all-too-familiar theme is given fresh treatment with quirky, cartoonlike illustrations of the giant slug, done in acrylics. Large print makes the book accessible to beginning readers.–Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
