Praise for Superworm
‘The energetic rhyme will keep the audience squirming with pleasure’

‘Riotous rhyme and glorious illustrations’ Irish Daily Mail

‘There are lessons here about friendship and the effectiveness of
joint action, but it’s the sheer imaginative force of Donaldson’s
jaunty rhyming narrative and Scheffler’s brilliantly funny illustrations
that will have this book wriggling into your affections’
