Hi-Ho Book Buddy!
It’s OCTOBER! Time for ghouls, ghosts, and goblins. If you are scared or feel like you’re in danger, NEVER FEAR! SUPERWORM IS HERE!
Superworm by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler is a rhymer that tells the story of the brave Superworm, who helps his animal friends daily with life’s big problems. But OH NO! The evil Wizard Lizard (with help of his servant’s crow) kidnaps our hero and puts him under the spell of a magical flower. Cute, I know!
What is Superworm going to to? How will he get out of this hot mess? Well…that’s what friends are for!
The subtext of this book is equally charming: you get back in this world what you put into it. It’s a valuable moral camouflaged as a quirky action-packed tale. You don’t want to miss this one!
The bold illustrations and the bouncing, fast-paced rhymes in this story will have your kids cheering Hip! Hip! Hooray for Superworm!
