The story of how one small creature can have a powerful effect for her and her friends using the power of restraint, kindness, and respect.

"Shaw's evocative descriptions of the flora and fauna will engage young readers and the author's note gives factual information about slugs and their value to the garden's ecosystem. Lee's mixed-media illustrations have a sophisticated palette with an aesthetic that grown-up fans of Anna Rifle Bond will appreciate. The balance between boisterous action and meditative zen makes this title a standout among yoga picture books. A fun, frolicking tale, and welcome addition to picture book collections, that sneaks in an etiquette lesson without feeling overly didactic."
--School Library Journal

"This cute story is brought to life by adorable pictures (the people and animals are very expressive) and even the shiny slime trail Sylvia leaves behind."
--Youth Services Review

"A slug saves the day for some hungry friends. . . Yoga fans may get a kick out of a slug mastering a locust pose."
--Kirkus Reviews

Sylvia is as small as your pinky finger and as slow as a. . . slug! She can't run or jump or fly like her animal friends. They hatch a plot to sneak into the bountiful garden.

But Sylvia has her own way of doing things--one that will make all the difference.
