The 411 by Maria and Goddess:
We loved Superworm. He is a great help to the creatures in the bug and ground kingdom. He helps his friends by becoming a lasso for a runaway baby frog, a jump rope for some bored bees and a rescue line for a beetle trapped in a well. One day Superworm is kidnapped by a nasty lizard who demands that Superworm do his evil bidding and find treasure in the earth. What is Superworm to do? Who will rescue him when he is usually the rescuer?
The book was a fun read for me and Goddess and a good message about being a friend. A lesson I constantly tell my kids. "To have friends, you have to be a friend!"
