Poor little worm meets some remarkable animals, all with a claim to fame: the toughest (gorilla), fastest (falcon), longest tongue (chameleon), and most intelligent (human), among many others.

Lavishly illustrated and with some intriguing detail, this is a funny, thoughtful tale with an environmental message and plenty of talking points about diversity and self-esteem.
