Praise for The Fly
"Young readers will at least come away with a thorough understanding of how unsanitary these insects are and also, perhaps, clearer pictures of their physical makeup, life cycle and even some of the differences among fly species. Gross-out potential, for sure--but also likely to give larval entomologists a mild buzz."

Elise Gravel returns with another Disgusting Creatures installment, this time the oh-so-gross slug. Often underrated, the slug actually benefits the environment!
How many times have you seen a slug and jerked away from it (or for those really naughty kids, sqiushed it)? After reading this book, you might think differently. Gravel's book is very informational, from characterizing the slug as a mollusk to providing facts about its mucus.
The information is paired with endearing illustrations that make the slug seem more cute than offputting, and the captions for the illustrations are very age appropriate. Gravel teaches children about smelling and tasting as well the slug's mating habits. Don't worry, it's very G.
Perhaps controversial, though I don't personally believe so, the slug is actually a boy and a girl at the same time, which might cause parents to have to explain a little bit. Gravel uses the word "partner" instead of mommy/daddy, which is very progressive.
More importantly than the possible controversy is the information regarding the slug's mucus and its benefits to the environment. Gravel shows children that even the slimiest creatures have good intentions!

"The Slug" highlighted in this book is the land slug. The author points out interesting features such as: it having no shell like a snail, it's two pair of tentacles, (one with eyes and one for smelling and tasting), how it breathes through a hole in its side, how it moves using contracting muscles on its belly and the purpose of its thick slimy mucus just to name a few. She covers the uniqueness of a girl/boy baby and foods that are appealing and necessary to sustain the slug's life.
It is sprinkled with great vocabulary words to look up and understand and a very accurate overview of a land slug's life. I highly recommend this book. The information is presented in very clever ways so you will remember the hard facts for years to come. It in enjoyable both through text and illustrations and both kids and adults will appreciate the content and humour.
Through cute and funny pictures kids will learn about the common land slug. Great vocabulary words are used such as mollusk, tentacles and predator in a way that kids can figure out what they mean. The group of 5-8 year olds that I read this to loved the silly things that the slug said as well as learning about how slugs move around, find a mate and the fact that they are both boys and girls at the same time.
I enjoyed all of the great curriculum tie-ins for learning about the natural world and biology. I also liked that the slugs importance to humans and the environment was included.
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
