We Love Books – Superworm by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Superworm, Julia Donaldson & Axel SchefflerThe Book People come to Shaun’s work quite often, and stopped by today – so we picked up the latest Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler book ‘Superworm’ for a really good price – and hardback too!

‘Superworm is super-long, Superworm is super-strong, Watch him wiggle! See him squirm! Hip, hip, hooray for SUPERWORM!’

The basic Superworm story – he helps all the local insects and is a proper superhero (and a worm), until he’s captured by the wicked Wizard Lizard. All his insect friends have a plan to free him and get him back….

Superworm is more of the fabulous rhyming, but a little more complicated than the usual books (this is a good thing, by the way) – H asked lots of questions about what was going on and enjoyed it, while generally on the first read she’ll listen. Yet again there’s fabulous illustrations, the rhymes are fun (though I struggled with Uncle Ant and earwig aunt’ – getting a bit tongue twisted), and of course there’s a happy ending.

If The Book People are due at your work, keep an eye out for this, as it’s at a really good price (better than online) – and with a rrp of £10.99 you’ve got an excellent bargain.

Superworm is published by Alison Green Books, ISBN 978-1-407132-04-4
