Reviews

"The cleverness of this story lies in its lighthearted, effective dissemination of information about various insects as well as earthworms. . . . The stunning illustrations are done in quilled paper--a centuries-old technique that involves assembling strips of colored paper into shapes--which adds sparkle and originality. . . . An engaging, informative narrative." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Boyd takes readers on a journey through a spring garden as a worm tries to discover what makes it special. Along the way, it speaks to various bugs and insects about their own talents before finding its own. . . . The information works best with preschoolers, who will love the standout in the book: gorgeous paper quilled artwork, which makes the garden jump off the page. . . . A lovely first work, and a talent to watch." -- School Library Journal
