Don’t Underestimate Slugs

The CBC has an article today about dogs and dog owners. Down near the bottom I came across this quote from famous Canadian author, Yann Martel.

“Stories are only useful for us. Animals don’t have stories,” said Martel, pointing out, for example, that telling the story of a slug from the slug’s point of view serves no purpose for that creature. “And it’ll be quite dull for us, because a slug has a very limited intellect.”

Well, I have this to say to Mr. Martel – you should read my book Sluggo the Smug Slug. Perhaps then you wouldn’t be so smug about your own opinion!
