Publisher's Summary

Fans of quirky, irreverent yuletide humor will screech with delight at Clarence the slug's Christmas adventure! A rude letter from a greedy child makes Santa go a bit bonkers - but it's Christmas Eve and the elves are desperate for someone to deliver all the presents! The Elf Doctor comes up with a completely mad plan to save the day - and soon the fate of Christmas depends on one giant slug! Will Clarence save the day, or will everybody's Christmas be a slime-covered nightmare? The Slug That Saved Christmas also contains a previously unreleased story - "Clarence the Slug's Lost Adventure" - along with two Hairy Tales stories ("The Walrus Story" and "Shipwreck'd Sarah"), plus a sizeable extract from The Easter Bunny Invasion!

Free review for free Xmas audiobook

Where does The Slug That Saved Christmas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I received this book in return for an impartial review, so here goes.
It's great fun, and begins pretty much like any other Christmas story. However, things soon begin to go downhill when (Santa freaks out over a letter from a spoilt brat), and eventually it is down to Clarence ( a giant slug) to slither in and try and deliver all the presents.
I'm not really a listener of kids stories but it's enjoyable for adults also..

What did you like best about this story?

It's very unconventional - though having heard Hairy Tales it's not surprising. There are other stories on the audiobook too.

What about Sheree Wichard’s performance did you like?

Carries you along nicely with the narrative, and makes you laugh with some of the accents. I enjoyed the French king (who wants to eat clarence) and the wizard elf.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The title is all you need!

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable. And kids will think so too.

Yucky and funny

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd mainly recommend it to children / their parents. It'd make a good christmas present.

What other book might you compare The Slug That Saved Christmas to, and why?

It's part of the Hairy Tales book series, by the same author. It's more of the same - funny, quirky, yucky stories for kids. Modernised fairy tales.

Have you listened to any of Sheree Wichard’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, on Hairy Tales. The performer puts a lot of effort into all the quirky nuances of the stories, and all the character voices.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The slimiest Christmas ever.
