The Bookworm is a funny, lighthearted story from much-loved children’s author and illustrator Debi Gliori, winner of the Red House Children’s Book Award and author of modern classics including No Matter What and The Trouble with Dragons.
Max really wants a pet, but his parents aren’t so sure. Pets cause too much mess and make too much noise! But how about a dragon? Max’s parents say that dragons don’t exist, so Max settles for a pet worm instead. And this particular pet worm turns out to be very unusual indeed, especially when it starts to breathe smoke.
Filled with colourful illustrations and a joy to read aloud,
The Bookworm is sure to enchant young children.
