The Lovereading4Kids comment

Striking illustrations cleverly carry the message about what is beautiful in this story that is also about a special friendship. When Spider finds that the reason Slug is crying is because he says everyone thinks he is so ugly, he decides to help Slug with the problem. Soon Spider and Slug are finding out what people think is beautiful – and why. As a result, Slug learns that beauty is how you see things – and that may have some nasty shocks attached to it!

Synopsis

Uugghh! by Claudia Boldt

Uugghh! A Slug! Slug feels completely unloved by the world, and can't help feeling it may have something to do with appearances. Happily, new-found friend Spider is on hand to explain that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
