Diary of a Worm

Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Harry Bliss (HarperCollins, 2003)
$16.99, Amazon / IndieBound Powell's

No child can resist the young baseball-cap-wearing worm, whose diary chronicles his everyday adventures — whether it’s playing with his friend spider, teasing his sister, or doing the first part of the Hokey Pokey with his classmates. Hilarious text and cartoon illustrations make readers of all ages ask, “Is there another book just like this?”
