Synopsis

Super Happy Magic Forest: Slug of Doom by Matty Long

Welcome back to the Super Happy Magic Forest, a super happy, super magical place filled with picnics, dancing, and fun. That is until the super slimy SLUG OF DOOM threatens to drink a magical potion that will give him the size and strength to eat the entire forest. Five heroes - a fairy, a unicorn, a faun, a gnome, and a talking mushroom - must go on an epic quest to find the potion before the SLUG OF DOOM can drink it, but their quest won't be easy. They must first navigate past dragon lairs, outwit cunning ogres, swim across deep rivers and work as a team if they are to succeed. With so much to laugh at and explore on every single page, lovers of silliness, adventure, and all things magical won't be able to get enough of SUPER HAPPY MAGIC FOREST: SLUG OF DOOM. SLUG OF DOOM is a standalone adventure that can be enjoyed even if you haven't read a previous SUPER HAPPY MAGIC FOREST book!
