    sarah montambo loves chris raschka"sluggy slug will not go because he is sluggy". that's what the library of congress has to say about sluggy slug. which is true, but pretty unmagical. this particular installment of the "thingy things" series marks a real departure for chris raschka. instead of ending the book with "moosey moose!", or "goosey goose!", there is A WHOLE OTHER PAGE which just blew my mind because i thought it was finished, but no! more sluggy slug! he may indeed be too sluggy to go, but he's still full of surprises.

    You think you can make Sluggy Slug go? Good luck, dumdum. I'll just be continuing to live my life while you waste yours. He's not going to budge until he's good and ready. Oh, you've got candy in your bag?! I'm not impressed and neither is Sluggy Slug.

    Defeniatly no moral, no lesson, etc. These books (snaily snail, lamby lamb, whaley whale, wormy worm, etc) embody the absurdity of humor. Personaly I'm scared to death of slugs but even I like this book wherein the slug JUST WONT GO!!!

    Sluggy slug will not go! For slug aficionados, I would definitely consider this book a "must read". It's a quick read (at about 20 words total) and won't leave you disappointed! The art is expressive and this slug will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling, the kind of feeling that comes from having a good friend that would never even consider dumping salt all over you! Note: this is for mature readers, you should probably be at least two years old before you attempt to delve into this kind of material.

    I couldn't resist checking this one out from the library when I saw the title. Sluggy Slug! Our beloved basset hound is named Doug, but we call him Slug all the time. Actually, this book reminded me of him because, just like Sluggy Slug, or Slug simply won't go! These books are best suited to early readers and I plan to keep them in mind for way, way in the future when my now-toddler is learning to read. For now, we liked looking at the cute pictures together, and he liked that the book was just his size.

    Sluggy Slug won't go. No, Sluggy Slug will not go. Sluggy Slug Says no. No. Sluggy Slug just won't go. Will he go now? No. Sluggy Slug won't go. Sluggy Slug! NO. Sluggy Slug simply won't go.

    Sluggy Slug will not go, not even for a tasty treat! So cute, very simple (fun illustration paired with simple text), great for sharing with the toddler crowd. Love this series of books, they crack me up!

    very anti-climactic, and I suppose rather sluggish. Not what I expected.

    slug is adorable but with raschka as the artist, is there any doubt? not really much to the book in the way of text or plot. girls liked it even though it was very short and low on intrigue.
