Slugs In Love

by Susan Pearson Illustrated by Kevin O'Malley

Marylou loves everything about Herbie — how his slime trail glistens in the dark, how he can stretch himself thin to squeeze inside the cellar window, and how he always finds the juiciest tomatoes. But Marylou is a shy slug. How can she get Herbie to notice her? Find out how Marylou woos her beloved in this must-have love-story that's perfect for Valentine's Day.
