My rating: 5 of 5 stars
'A wacky and fun new adventure from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, starring a truly unforgettable hero!
Toad in trouble? Beetle in a jam? Never fear -- Superworm is here! And he's wiggling to the rescue!
But when Superworm is captured by a wicked Wizard Lizard, will his friends find a way to help their favorite superhero escape?
From the creators of THE GRUFFALO and ROOM ON THE BROOM, a super new adventure with a wriggly, squiggly hero you'll never forget.'
This is a story that I regularly read to my class and they absolutely love it every time.
Julia Donaldson has an unique way of engaging the children and sparking imagination. All of her books are popular favourites in our class, that we regularly use to prepare work for them.
The book has wonderful rhyme in it, which the children pick up and join in with. It introduces vocabulary for the children to use when to describe something, such as wiggle/squirm.
Being an insect this book can be related to topics on minibeasts for reception/year 1 children.
When the children were asked what they loved about this book, they all mentioned the illustrations. They are clear, colourful and exciting.
Personally I don't think this is as good as other Julia Donaldson books, however the children do and it's them that count!
