Editorial Reviews

Morris Gleitzman's stories have dazzled and stimulated children's imagination for years, and his audiobook Worm Story is no different. In this adventurous and funny tale, the big worm, Wilton, is forced to put his worries about his weight out of his mind when he finds out his world is under attack from flash storms and mass illness. Performed with a lively animation by the author himself, kids will fall in love with Wilton and his tiny friend, Algy, as they go in search of a solution to dooming changes. Worm Story is another exciting release from Gleitzman that is full of surprises.

Publisher's Summary

Bigger and fatter than all the other microbes in the valley, Wilton feels ostracized and out of place. But even more worryingly, their world has become unhealthy and toxic with mass illness and flash storms. Setting out to find out what is wrong, Wilton meets Algy, a tiny microbe small enough to sit on his shoulder (and take refuge in his guts) who accompanies Wilton on his quest. Taking a wrong turn in an effort to escape some killer fungus, they inadvertently end up outside and discover (thanks to some helpful bacteria) that the world in which they live is actually one giant organism called Janet.
