Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin & Harry Bliss

one more gap-bridging book — one that both BC and jools adore!

people adore the click clack moo books by doreen cronin, and i would agree. there’s something wonderful about subversive cows and ducks taking over the joint. but take a gander (har-dee-har, i’m such a card!) at another book by cronin that makes jools nearly pee himself. ok, so that’s no mean feat, but it nearly makes me pee myself, too!

diary of a worm is a silly little journal filled with deep observations about life as an annolid. so yeah, worms aren’t fascinating, right? well, maybe not, but this little worm, illustrated so amusingly by bliss, makes some observations that are worthy of the monty python troupe. two favorites:

1) when the worm gets in trouble with his mother for telling his sister that her face looks exactly like her rear. (she’s a worm. it does.)

2) when the worms do the hokey pokey. a challenge when you consider how they’re built.

apparently, cronin also takes on diaries of other creeply crawlies. i can’t wait to check them out. that is, if jools ever lets me return this bad boy.

  1. being a big Genesis fan you must have heard the long story about worms which Gabriel told just before Supper’s Ready performances….?
    “Rain in the worm world means two things, mating and bathtime.”

  2. I don’t get the fascination with that Worm book, but I loooove the Click, Clack, Moo series: Click, Clack, Moo; Giggle, Giggle, Quack; Duck For President. Nothing funnier than that subversive duck.
