Edworm longs to be more than a worm, but what can he do with no arms, legs, or wings. He soon finds himself unexpectedly flicked out of the earth into the outside world where he meets creatures who are either friendly, or hungry for tastey worms. His adventure turns into a nightmare as he realizes there is no place like home.

I have gotten lots of great feedback from children whom this book has been read to. Many grandparents have stopped in my work to tell me how their grandchildren want them to read this book over and over to them. Some children have also stopped by my work to tell me how much they love Edworm:)
A great project to go along with reading this book is making dirt cup cakes. You need chocolate cupcakes, chocolate frosting, crushed chocolate cookies ( for the dirt) and gummy worms. They are fun for little children to make and delicious to eat!
Deep inside the earth in the soil so firm, lived an energetic nightcrawler named Edworm. He would tunnel to the left and tunnel to the right, burrowing endless passageways all through the night.
Finally, Edworm stopped and let out a giant burp. Edworm shouted out, "I'm sick of eating gritty dirt! Just once I'd like to run, jump, fly and swim but I'm only a worm with no legs, wings or fins."
