Sinopsis: Sam's pet snake,Slim, likes to play pretend. There are many ways he can bend. One day, Slim goes missing. Slim could be anything or be anywhere, which is why Sam is in great despair.
Review : "It's not a scrupulously researched statistic, but around 30% of parenting time must be devoted to frantically searching for stuff that a child has mislaid. Every parent knows the lurch in the stomach when they realize that their offspring's beloved chewed kitten, worn teddy bear, or duct taped action figure is nowhere to be seen. Such are the mini dramas of childhood making it a fitting subject for a children's fable. Slim introduces us to the eponymous snake with an unfortunate talent for blending into his environment. At first this skill delights his owner, Sam, who rejoices in Slim's ability to adopt the shape of a tree branch or chair leg. Any experienced parent will see what is coming and will understand why Caron Sisko's delightful illustrations have a hint of the ominous style of Edward Gorey or Tim Burton about them. Inevitably Slim disappears and Sam's reaction is familiar to any parent: "She put her hands to her head in a terrible panic. Tears were shed. She went manic!" Sam's imagination begins to run rampant, conjuring up bleak images of Slim's possible fate. What happens next is a lesson not to give up hope or surrender to despair. Sisko's tale is that rare treat, a story where the words and illustrations are perfectly complementary. The simple rhyming text is immediately given additional resonance, humor, and color by drawings that combine the feel of a classic morality tale with a stylish contemporary expressiveness. There's an understated wit at play here; a lightness of touch that will ensure repeat readings. It's a sweet conclusion, although for any parent reading the story, the message might be distilled down to something more basic and direct: look after your (insert mild, child-friendly expletive) stuff!" - KART Kids Book Reviews, New Jersey, USA Copyright © 2015 PediNatural® All rights reserved.
