    As a teacher I love this book! My kids love it too. They are so engaged during our writing sessions and have produced some great writing pieces. They are great for filling in time if you have nothing prepared as well!

        Comments about Once Upon a Slime:

        I did not read this book but sent it to an 11 year old Canadian boy who is very bright and loves reading. His mother told me that Zachary does not do much creative writing at school but she thinks this book may well get him started.
