One of our Dyslexia Friendly Books of the Year 2015 - Interest Age 5-8 Reading Age 5+

Hetty, a little grey earthworm, is spellbound when she sees a glow-worm. She longs to have a glowing little light in her body too so that she can light the way home, or find lost things in dark corners, or read all night under the bedclothes. Her parents explain it’s impossible and console her with cuddles and gingerbread stars, but Hetty is determined and, thanks to a somewhat distracted wizard, gets her glow. Anne Fine has created a lovely little fairy tale with a resolute hero, rewarded for her hard work and honesty. Perfect bedtime reading, made even more special thanks to its glow-in-the-dark cover!
