Superworm is super long, and super strong, and super good at saving the day. His long body can turn into a lasso, a jump rope, a fishing line, and so much more. The evil Wizard Lizard sees how handy he is and he kidnaps him to help find treasure in the soil. When all the other garden critters realize that Superworm is in trouble, they devise a plan to save him. Will he make it back to his own lovely garden, or will the Wizard Lizard control him forever?
This book is “super fun!” The story is great. It is suspenseful, and action packed. The text is also super fun. It has rhythm, rhyme, and repetition. Best of all it has a little chant that all of the creatures sing about Superworm. I love the illustrations, as each little character has its own personality painted on its face. They are bright and bold pictures, with a sort of charming simplicity. They greatly compliment the text and storyline of the book. I also like that it has a bit of a dark element to it, but it may be a little scary to some of the younger kids.
