This humorous tale told in the style of Seuss definitely needs to be read out loud but expect lots of students to want to read it themselves afterwards! - Goodreads Reviewer
The book is written as a poem which makes it a fun way to read a story, and makes it more gripping and I really wanted to know what was causing the slime. The illustrations are hilarious and the whole thing is one funny story. - Guardian
