"Worm learns along with readers that love is not a surface-level emotion and that true connections bind us deeply to each other. The art is joyful, colorful, and expressive, with emotions reading perfectly on the cartoon insect faces. Overall, it’s a appealing read with a message of acceptance that caregivers will be able to easily apply to real life.

Warm and delightful, this tale will stay with readers long after they turn the last page." KIRKUS: STARRED REVIEW
