Superworm is a captivating and fun read for all ages. Children are sure to giggle over Superworm's antics as he uses his body in inventive ways to rescue frog--he becomes a lasso, to play with bees, he becomes a jump rope, he saves beetle by becoming a fishing line. The animals love Superworm.

Lizard wants Superworm to find treasure in the soil, so he sends Crow to kidnap Superworm. The animals band together and make a plan to find Superworm and free him from Lizard. Everyone rejoices when their friend Superworm returns home.

A worm as a main character in a children's book is genius! Superworm will make readers rethink their views on the lowly worm. Colorful illustrations bring the animals to life and help show their personalities. Crow appears evil and devious while the frogs and bees stare aghast as Crow carries away a frightened Superworm.
