Editorial Reviews

"The story presents such a winning heroine, Winnie, part-scientist, part-entrepreneur, that you may consider raising worms as a hobby." -Chicago Tribune"The back of the book has instructions for how to start your own worm farm to help your garden; which makes this book a great one for sparking a family project next summer." -The News & Observer"Winnie's spunky, good-natured heart anchors a gentle and entertaining read." -School Library Journal"Hoyt's sprightly cartoons add just the right amount of humorous action to Winnie's worm-farming tasks, while Winnie's winning personality allows readers to learn a bit about the positive aspects of worm composting. An author's note includes directions for creating a worm farm and sources." -Kirkus Reviews
