Booklist STARRED Review of Creeping Slime: Slime Molds

Starred Review: The bright yellow, alien-looking globs on the cover of this volume in the Slime-inator & Other Slippery Tricksters series (6 titles) hint at something gross within, and, well, that’s not far off the mark. But slime molds are also seriously cool, and readers lured in by the weird goop on the cover will come away with some amazing facts; for instance, slime molds can find the most efficient route through a maze, despite having no brain! Beginning with a basic description of this single-celled organism, the chapters move on to explain how slime molds grow, eat, and move, all accompanied by bold, full-color, close-up photos—each one labeled— showcasing their brilliant colors and drippy shapes. Lawrence clearly explains the concepts, adding helpful pronunciation guides following each new vocab term, and keeps the tone engagingly enthusiastic. Eye-catching photos, surprising science, and truly fascinating topic set this apart from the crowd.
