Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New York Times bestselling author of Click, Clack, Moo and Giggle, Giggle, Quack teams up with illustrator Harry Bliss for this hysterical journal about the daily doings and the hidden world of a lovable underground dweller.

Review:

"Cronin's beguiling journal entries...are as witty and original as the missives from her popular cows who can type....Inventive and laugh-out-loud funny, this worm's-eye view of the world will be a sure-fire hit." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Each turn of the page will bring fresh waves of giggles....Readers will come away with the insight that worms may not be so good at...doing the Hokey Pokey, but they do play an important role in taking care of the Earth." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

What can you do with . . .

 

a dried-up watering hole,

some mud,

and a thunderstorm?

 

Just ask Mac and Will! When these unlikely friends fun plans go awry, they show how a day of unexpected ups and downs can still be a perfect day—all it takes is a little imagination.

The stars of Bad Apple, A Tale of Friendship are back, making new friends by looking on the bright side.

About the Author

Doreen Cronin is the New York Times best-selling author of Click, Clack, Moo and Giggle, Giggle, Quack.

Harry Bliss is an award-winning cartoonist and cover artist for The New Yorker magazine. "Each day, I pick up my son, Alex, from school," Bliss says. "I always get a kick out of the expressions of exhilaration on the kids' faces when the bell rings, sending them off and running. But it's so cold here in northen Vermont that most of the kids head straight home to a fine, fine cup of hot chocolate."

365 Read Alouds, January 31, 2010 (view all comments by 365 Read Alouds)
A colleague of mine referred me to this adorable book that allows readers to look at the world through the humorous perspective of a young earthworm. I think this book will make an excellent mentor text for students who are deciding to write narrative nonfiction pieces. It's a great text for teaching readers to be on the look out for jokes and for teaching writers how to incorporate humor into their writing.
