Perfect fodder for boys in particular and if you have a reluctant reader then the Slime Squad is great too. Slimy all action adventure fills the pages as a scientific dream gone wrong results in an old rubbish tip becoming home to monsters and giants. Crime lurks everywhere and it's up to Plog and the rest of the Slime Squad to fight crime with slime!
