This is a well-written, imaginative book. It is written in verse and the author clearly understands how to write poetry. Many children's books have such horrible meter that they are awkward to read aloud. This one reads quite easily.
The illustrations are cute. I'm no artist or art critic, but these images are colorful and detailed enough to be interesting to look at without being overly fussy and busy.
The story is completely fanciful. As the title implies, this story is about a worm hero. There is no naming of worm anatomy or extolling the real virtues of worms in nature. It is a fun story with anthropomorphic animals complete with heroes and villains. If you're looking for a book that teaches about worms, this one is not for you. If your goals are less science and more art and literature then I recommend this book.
I liked this rhyming children’s book and the energy inside it. Superworm loves to help others, he doesn’t expect anything in return, he just likes to be with his friends and wants them to be happy. When he is kidnapped by Wizard Lizard, his face changes and the tables have now turned as his friends must now come to his rescue. The illustrations are bright and colorful inside and I think children will love the ending in this children’s book.
This is an example of those underlying negative messages we give to young children including girls have to be pretty, quiet and submissive; boys have to be strong and tough; and the black guys/people are always bad.
