Superworm - Julia Donaldson

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superworm! When animal friends are in trouble, who will come to their aid? Superworm! He can stop boredom, he can pull trapped beetles out of wells and he can save baby toad who has wandered into a dangerous situation. Superworm is a life saver. Only who can save Superworm when he is captured by Wizard Lizard who hears of this wonderful worm and wants him. The Wizard wants Superworm to use his super abilities to find treasure deep in the soil. Using magic, he puts Superworm under a spell. Days in and days out Superworm digs underground, without any luck, he is running out of time. He needs to be successful in his assignment or his life will be cut short and hungry crow will find out just how tasty Superworm really is.  


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.
