about

The second in a series of humorous books about disgusting creatures, The Worm is a look at the earthworm. It covers such topics as the worm's habitats (sometimes they live inside other animals), its anatomy (its muscle tube is slimy and gross), and its illustrious history (worms have been on earth for 120 million years). Although silly and off-the-wall, The Worm contains real information that will tie in with curriculum.

Customer Reviews of The Worm: The Disgusting Critters Series

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fun! I loved the way this book educates kids about worms! It makes this "disgusting" critter relatable instead of "gross".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious and Memorable! Our 5 year old twin boys love this book! Each time reading it with them results in belly laughter. The illustrations and text are humorous and captivating. A great choice for young bug-loving kids! We have ordered two more in the series!

Editorial Reviews

"The boldly colored cartoons and handwritten display fonts make this a very appealing package .... Gravel tightrope-walks the line between gross and funny." - Publishers Weekly “These easy-to-read entrants feature caricature-like cartoon illustrations that appealingly depict worms and flies. The brief text imparts information and is accompanied by chatty asides from the subjects .... Readers will find these titles fun to peruse and will pick up some useful material on the subjects, along with a tasty soupçon of icky-ness.” - School Library Journal“The narrative is both informative and playful, balancing each worm-fact with a pithy commentary from the worms themselves .... The Worm seamlessly introduces interesting and important worm-facts .... and it does so in a medium that is delightful and downright charming. What’s even better is that it is available in both English and French, making it a perfect candidate for any bilingual classroom or home.” - The Deakin Review of Children’s Literature"Writing a science book for kids is tricky–finding the balance between pushing the facts without overplaying the gross-out is tough. Elise Gravel’s The Worm pulls this off .... It’s part of a series and we’re hoping the other books are just as good.” - The Globe & Mail
