Synopsis

Sibling rivalry exists even between snakes, and Slither and Joe McCreep are no exceptions. “Some of the pictures-whether of the mother entangled on the telephone or of brother Joe leering at his favorite rock group, Bal Boa and the Vindow Vipers, hissing ‘Scales, Part II’ on the TV-are a psychedelic delight.” -Booklist
