Booklist Review

Anyone familiar with tweens is also familiar with slime; and, whether they are newbies or experienced with the gooey pastime, this book will be a hit. The author starts with directions for making the slime base, including a variety of activators (e.g., liquid starch) that don't use Borax, and an alternate, nontoxic edible slime for younger kids. This introductory section also gives troubleshooting tips (e.g., if the slime is too sticky) and storage suggestions. Once readers complete the next step adding color and texture with the help of food coloring, glitter, foam beads, and other craft items they're ready for the fun. Recipes, divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced categories, show tweens how to turn their goo into metallic slime, glitter bombs, slime that looks like bubblegum, and more. Each recipe offers variations, providing readers with more than 100 slimy possibilities. But what can you do with the slime? A final section highlights projects (e.g., food replicas and decorative jars). Pulling it all together are large, colorful, and high-quality photos of slime-making in action.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2018 Booklist
