Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
This is a hilarious journal that highlights some of the good and bad things about being a worm. For instance, worms can't get cavities (as they have no teeth), but they must be very careful around the dangerous game of hopscotch. This book shows a worm child as he engages in childhood activities like school and vacations, but told with humor from the perspective of the world of worms. Other books by Doreen Cronin include Diary of a Spider, Diary of a Fly and Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type.
