This is great story about a sensitive boy who is obsessed with slugs. I have included this book on my list of kids books that promote community, tolerance and kindness (Bookmanager List #368217) which you can find here if you haven’t seen it already.

I have to say, my oldest son Ben read this book. He has Type 1 Diabetes, and I think the story really resonated with him as well, so thank you so much for writing it and sharing this very important story with everybody. — Rob Murray Mountain FM
