About The Book
The irresistible story of one slug's search for love from picture book bestsellers Rachel Bright and Nadia Shireen.
Pure, riotous, nonsensical joy' - The Guardian
Doug the slug needs a hug. But who wants to hug a slug called Doug?
Snuggle up with lonesome Doug on his search for love in this completely charming picture book which shows that you just never know when love might come flying by... (And which introduces an unsuspecting world to snail superstar, Gail!)
A warm and endearing rhyming text by Rachel Bright (Love Monster, The Lion Inside) is perfectly paired with funny and fabulous illustrations by Nadia Shireen (Good Little Wolf, Billy and the Beast) in this adorable future classic.
