In the sixth book in Andrea Beaty and David Roberts’s New York Times bestselling illustrated Questioneers chapter book series, it’s Aaron Slater, Illustrator, to the rescue when a sly snake slithers into some mischief.
Zookeeper Fred loves snakes, but his favorite is a tiny green snake named Vern. Vern is sneaky and constantly tries to hide in Fred’s lunch. When Vern gets loose in the zoo and lands atop a boy’s head, it’s trouble!
A few citizens demand that all the snakes must go, and the mayor closes the zoo until the city council decides what to do. Is Vern a menace? Are the snakes a danger to society or a valuable resource for everyone? Who gets to decide?
In Aaron Slater and the Sneaky Snake, the Questioneers need all their talents to help Zookeeper Fred, but in the end, it’s Aaron’s art that leads the way.
