Superworm Superworm

Written by Julia Donaldson
Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

A wacky 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 Stick Man and Room on the Broom, a super new adventure with a wriggly, squiggly hero you'll never forget.


“A word lover’s delight in rousing, rhyming verse.” -- New York Times Book Review

“The British duo behind the Gruffalo books and Stick Man (2009) reteam to tell a tale of friendship and cooperation. The unlikely superhero with his googly eyes and winning smile will be hit, and the rhythmic rhyme will have audiences chanting along by the end of the story. At this point in their collaboration, Donaldson and Scheffler know exactly how to complement each other’s work. Silly and slimy—superfun!” -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Donaldson’s seamless verse has the gratifying, thumping predictability of nursery rhymes, and the action hurtles along nonstop. The fact that the hero is a creature that is usually thought of as frail and helpless carries an implicit message of its own." -- Publishers Weekly

“Told in well-scanning, rhyming couplets, this tale of friends helping friends is a joy to read aloud and will be welcomed by children in group or one-on-one sharing. Saturated, boldly colored cartoon illustrations reveal googly-eyed insects who live together in harmony, once they rid themselves of a pesky lizard.” -- Booklist

“Ms. Donaldson’s romping verse and Mr. Scheffler’s colorful, comic illustrations combine to tell a story that makes perfect sense for all its mad improbability…. Great fun to read aloud, this adventure ends as it begins, with a cheer: “Hip, hip, hooray for Superworm!” -- Wall Street Journal

“A slightly slimy superhero who will (literally) worm his way into your heart… Charming.” -- School Library Journal
