Here’s the 411-
“Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell is back, and he’s on fabulous, festive form!”
When a sack of presents lands right by Norman’s stocking, he is overcome with excitement. He really must have been a very good slug this year! But after a frenzy of unwrapping, he spots a label- and realises that none of the presents were meant for him, but had in fact fallen off Father Christmas’s sleigh! Norman knows he has to get the presents to the family they’re meant for- but how can he manage it in time? Can one little slug save Christmas?
When this book landed on our doorstep, I couldn’t resist reading it to the girls that evening (even though it’s like 6 weeks ’til Christmas!). I’m so glad I did, even as an adult I loved reading about Norman’s adventures!
I asked the girls what their favourite part of the book was, and both declared that Norman’s ingenious way of re-wrapping the presents he’d opened was hilarious!
With its festive theme and bright, bold artwork, both children and adults alike are sure to fall in love with this hilarious new addition to Sue Hendra‘s wonderfully wacky picture book list. A true Christmas treat!
