Turning a holiday classic upside-down, How the Slug Stole Solstice is alternative fare for those who may not celebrate traditional Christmas or Hanukkah. In this delightfully wacky multi-generational comedy (in Seuss-like rhyme), a giant banana slug named Sally, accompanied by three hand-picked thugs, must battle her fear of the dark to make a journey through the spookiest of forests to stop Winter Solstice, and bring back the sun earlier than scheduled. As told around a campfire by Grampa Joe to his granddaughters Cricket and Boo, the story of Sally's adventures with a scary forest witch and an intellectual bumblebee (among many others) leads Boo to her own magical understanding of conquering one's fears.
