Description

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 factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.

Editorial Review

Praise for previous Disgusting Critters:

"Gross-out potential, for sure--but also likely to give larval entomologists a mild buzz..." - Kirkus Reviews

"Each page has incredible visual appeal and is very eye-catching.... Gravel's ability to turn the most disgusting fact into an adorable drawing is remarkable.... This series is a must-read for children who like the world's most unlikeable creatures. Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Fact-filled enough to satisfy those interested in flies, yet with enough charm to grab those who aren't. This is a great entry into a series kids will likely latch onto." - School Library Journal
