Synopsis

Little Worm's Big Question by Eva Schlunke, Paul Fitzgerald

Little Worm is the humble but intrepid hero of our tale. Feeling downtrodden and without self-confidence, he embarks on an epic quest to ask each of the animals he meets - what is it that makes them feel special..? On this wild roller coaster ride through a mesmerizing variety of beautifully painted habitats, he meets the biggest (a blue whale), the fastest (a falcon), and finally, the most intelligent (a human). But it's only when he returns home that the heartwarming and uplifting truth finally dawns on him...

Reviews

'Sumptuous illustrations.' - Daniel Postgate, Writer and creator of the Clangers. 'It looks like we have a winner in the children's book world!' - Alan Bean, Apollo 12 moonwalker and artist. 'Little worm is a wonderful educator, a mirror whose travels tell us many stories - stories about ourselves. He is subtle, inquisitive but determined. Like Dr Seuss, this is a story for all ages.' - Costa Georgiadis, presenter of ABC's Gardening Australia. 'An enchanting, witty and mesmerizingly illustrated modern fable, with a humble but intrepid hero whose epic journey weaves together a tale of emotional and ecological awareness.' - Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP.'
