A Slug Story won best children’s book at the 17th Doug Wright Comic Book Awards. This is a national award but it doesn’t hurt us here in the West that the publisher is Renegade books in Alberta and the author lives in Banff.
A Slug Story by Mandi & Hana Kujawa, Claude St. Aubin
Price: $14.99 CAD
Book ships via Raincoast PGC.
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.

Mountain FM ran a new interview with co-author Mandi Kujawa following the win.
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
