The First Slodge by Jeanne Willis, Illustrated by Jenni Desmond

Big Fan of Jenni Desmond! The contrast of cute character designs against dramatic water colour backgrounds, I find irresistible.

Check out the beautiful new book she has illustrated for Jeanne Willis, published by Little Tiger Press. It’s a keeper!

Once upon a slime, there was a Slodge. The first Slodge in the universe. She saw the first moon and stars, the first fruits and flowers. “Mine, all mine!” she said. But what if there was not just one Slodge . . . but two?

A wonderfully original and witty picture book from the award-winning author, Jeanne Willis (Who’s in the Loo? and The Bog Baby). This humorous exploration of sharing and friendship carries an important message: that the world belongs to everyone. Captivating illustrations from Jenni Desmond (Red Cat, Blue Cat) will delight adults and children alike. A book to share and treasure.
