moral to this story is, “Don't be a bully”. The
rest of this book goes on to show how the tables are turned
and Slugger gets the better of Crawly.
years I regarded this story as my poetic masterpiece. In fact,
I bought a blank-paged hard-cover notebook and wrote this poem
in it ... one verse per page, complete with pencil illustrations.
don't remember who's idea it was, but when each of my 4 children
went to kindergarten for the first time, my Slugger
the Slug book went with them. Not only that, but
their teachers were quite happy to read my book to their class.
father should get this book published”, was the message
I kept receiving when they got back home.
it may have taken over 30 years, but now it's published!
These books, Slugger the Slug and
The Magical Tooth Fairy, are superbly
written and illustrated! and should be published (in hard or
paper back copy.) in all probability. I can't begin to imagine
how many kids would want to have these books to read at bedtime
or at anytime. My son is in awe. Thinks that James Taris is
super good. And famous. And an awesome artist ... Dorie
