Hot Men of Children’s Literature, Part 40 in a Series
You know, I’m a little disappointed in you people. Here we are, safely snuggled in our warm little SLJ bed, and not once, NOT ONCE, has anyone accused me of holding off on further installments in my Hot Men of Children’s Literature Series. I would have thought someone suspected me of holding out. Well, sure as shooting, the series is back. It took a small Omigod-I-Don’t-Know-How-to-Work-This-Blog related vacation, and now I’m ready to christian the inaugural HMOCL of the site.
This required meditation, thought, and reflection. After all, you can’t just launch into a random man. This would have to be someone I’d been intending to do for a very long time. And I knew just the guy.
Today’s fella is a Brit. Brit’s are, by dint of their accents, innately hot. Now this guy, I can guarantee, you have not heard of. Not unless you read me in Britain, which seems unlikely even to me. No, this guy is a small writer in his native berg and hasn’t crossed the Atlantic. So it is with great pleasure that I introduce you to….
He’s written a series called The Oddies about lost socks and their various misadventures. Sounds trite, right? Actually, it’s not bad. I got my hands on a copy of a book or two (hands on = was sent by the man’s promo rep) and it doesn’t hurt matters that each book comes with a single sock of its own.
Books aside, let’s get to the real issue here.

Well, that’s enough to make you #40 in our HMOCL series, sir. Congrats Mr. Slatter.
