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. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Winner of the 2014 Red House Children's Book Awards Best Book for Younger Children

Luckily, all of Superworm's insect friends have a cunning plan...
