Slicker sets a good example for children through his words and actions. Slicker McQuicker and Friends offers two short stories featuring this funny boy. “Everyone’s Special” tells how each and every person has unique and important qualities. The story “Slicker’s Bad Day” narrates how some of Slicker’s friends are making fun of him because his ears are too big and his hair is too red. They don’t want to play with him. But Slicker rises above the meanness and does the right thing. This rhyming picture book for children shares how one special boy teaches his friends the value of morals, self-confidence, and friendship.
