A self-assured slug slinks slowly up a suspicious sloping surface. Scoffing at shouts of "Stop!" from spectators, the smug slug finally reaches the summit. Is he in for a shocking surprise?

This slug is so appealing and full of personality that it will certainly garner sympathy. The cover alone is enough to get readers to select this book.
