The Disgusting Critters series puts these misunderstood creatures under a more appealing light. By using caricatures and humour, readers can focus on the facts rather than their unsettling appearance. In the case of the slug, specifically the land slug, they use mucus to move around, and compost vegetation. Both the information and the text is kept to an early grade school level with important words being highlighted in big or block letters. This part is factual while the images and dialogue aim for the humourous. Simple, whimsical and a great series for young children interested in the slimy and weird.
