Superworm

Staff Review: Superworm

"Superworm" by Julia Donaldson

'Superworm'  by  Julia Donaldson
★★★★★

“Hip, hip hooray for SUPERWORM”, repeatedly chant the animals and insects in the forest as their hero Superworm saves them from many disasters.   But in the midst of their happiness the evil wizard lizard captures Superworm with his servant crow and puts an evil spell on him, forcing him to find treasure in the soil.  Will his friends rescue him, break the evil spell, and restore their happy life?  With its unlikely, admirable hero and repetitive chants, this picture book is a wonderful read-aloud and an instant hit with young children. SUPERWORM contains all of the ingredients for a beloved picture book:  a wonderful story that children can relate to,   a hero they can root for, a villain to scare them a little bit, and of course, a happy ending.     
 

Audience: Children | Genre: Fiction, Picture Book, Read-Alouds
