Winner of the 2014 Red House Children's Book Awards Best Book for Younger Children - September 2012 Book of the Month. Award-winning Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo, tell a romping story of Superworm, a new hero on the block. Good old Superworm! Using his special superpowers, he can rescue Beetle when she falls down the well, save a baby frog from being run over on the road, and entertain bored children by turning himself into a skipping rope. But someone evil wants to make use of those special powers…Can the other creatures rescue Superworm and take their revenge on the Wicked Lizard? A cracking storyline delivered in bouncing rhyming couplets.

He can fish Spider out of a well, and rescue Toad from a busy road. But who will come to Superworm's rescue, when he's captured by a wicked Wizard Lizard? Luckily, all of Superworm's insect friends have a cunning plan...

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
