Too Much Slime! By Frances Gilbert & Illustrated By Vin Vogel

Back of Book:

FLERK. Nope. Never open the door, or else…OH NO! The kids in this book opened the door!! Slime is everywhere! It’s icky and sticky and gloppy and gunky. There’s no hiding it. And now it’s on the move, heading for the school, ready to take over the whole town! Well, it truly takes a village to defeat this flourescent menace. Not until every construction worker, cook, kid, and member of the marching band pitches in does the slime get divided and conquered…until one tiny blob is left, glerp, that fits neatly into a lunchbox. Whew! Well, that takes care of that, right? Phlop.

My Review:

I received a copy of this picture book from Random House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Too Much Slime by Frances Gilbert is a creative, and fun story about two children and their adventure with the out-of-control slime. The text is written using onomatopoeia and other descriptive words. As a teacher, I believe this book is a perfect read-aloud to focus on English Language Arts concepts such as prepositions or adjectives. Readers of all ages will laugh at each attempt to redirect the slime. The illustrations by Vin Vogel revolve around the slime, while also focusing on each character in the book. I especially love the expressions on each person trying to help. In addition, the cat and dog on each page add extra fun to the story. Too Much Slime will be an instant hit, no matter which age group reads it. 

Ages 5 and up
