A blob of slime has broken out of the prison in which it has been kept for years. As it slithers in escape it slurps up everything in its path. Nothing is safe. Especially not Measle Stubbs. For the slippery stomach has gobbled up a gaggle of wrathmonks, and in doing so has ingested theirdislike of Measle. Now the blob is after him. And nothing can stop it. Not Iggy Niggle. Not Nanny Flannel. Not Tinker the dog. But it has enjoyed eating them . . .Can Measle gulp down his fear and beat the Slitherghoul . . . before the Slitherghoul gulps him down?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Stars! Ian Ogilvy is a genius. I found his first book (Measle and the Wrathmonk) at my school's book fair - read it and I loved it. I read the next three books (Measle and the Dragodon, Measle and the Mallockee and Measle and the Slitherghoul) and loved them too. This book, Measle and the Slitherghoul, is my favorite of the series though. Once you start reading it, you just can't put it down - literally, I read it in less than a day!! I hope Mr. Ogilvy will continue to write Measle books!! This is a 5 star book and I guarantee that you will love it!!!

`It's scary, very scary, but there's a good chance that Measle can save the day. Ideal for serialised read-aloud for younger children, or for competent readers'Glasgow Herald
