Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell is back and he's on fabulous, festive form. A Christmas treat for Sue Hendra fans everywhere.
When a sack of presents lands - THWACK - right by Norman's stocking he is overcome with excitement. He really must have been a very good slug this year. But after a frenzy of unwrapping he spots a label - and realises that none of the presents were meant for him, but had in fact fallen off Father Christmas's sleigh. Norman knows he has to get the presents to the family they're meant for - but how can he manage it on time? Can one little slug save Christmas?
Sue Hendra graduated from the University of Brighton in 1994 and has been working as an illustrator of children's books since then. With Paul Linnet, she is the author/illustrator of the hugely successful Barry the Fish with Fingers. Sue lives in Brighton.
