In a ninth `` Boasting of his planned field trip, Arthur describes ``snakes--slimy things you would not like, but Violet responds, mildly, ``A girl in my class brought in a snake she caught...It wasn't a bit slimy. Arthur sets out on his trip while Violet and her friends camp out nearby, turning down his offer to ``protect them in the woods at night. Left alone, it's Arthur who's scared, especially of bats; the girls take him in, but not without a lecture on bats' ecological virtues. The good humour of Hoban's naturally cadenced dialogue and realistic detail mellows the message, while the childlike characters are as likeable in her full-colour mixed media art as in the text.
