5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 4 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Superworm (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an absolute gem--even better than the best-selling (and I think,scary!) Gruffalo stories by the same team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.It has beautiful illustrations with lots of scope for chatting with little ones about what you can see in the drawings, and the story is in simple rhyme--easy to join in and remember.Typically, a favourite bedtime book!
Superworm can use his super-long and super-strong body for inventive play with his friends in the garden. He can be a swing or a slide, a crane or a train! Better still, like his namesake Superman,he can carry out heroic deeds by using his body as a fishing line to save a beetle from a well or as a lassoo to save baby toad who has strayed into the road. As in Superman, an evil adversary causes a spot of bother,(here it's a wizard lizard) but all Superworm's small animal and insect friends get together and save the day!
There are so many good things in the story:the humour in the rhymes, a bit of danger but a happy ending, and the importance of friends and helping one another. No matter how small you are,you can still make a difference, especially with everyone working together.
If you are wondering about stocking-fillers for pre-schoolers (and slightly above) I don't see how anyone could fail to enjoy this book. It's so good, it should be compulsory, especially at Amazon's price.
