Synopsis

Synopsis

The second in a series of humorous books about disgusting creatures, The Worm is a look at the earthworm. It covers such topics as the worm's habitats (sometimes they live inside other animals), its anatomy (its muscle tube is slimy and gross), and its illustrious history (worms have been on earth for 120 million years). Although silly and off-the-wall, The Worm contains real information that will tie in with curriculum.

About Elise Gravel

Elise Gravel - The Worm
Elise Gravel is an award-winning author/illustrator from Quebec. She has won a Governor General's Award for Children's Illustration in French, and is well-known for her original, wacky picture books and graphic novels. After completing her studies in graphic design, Elise found herself quickly swept up into the glamorous world of illustration. Her old design habits drive her to work a little text here and there into her drawings and she loves to handle the design of her assignments from start to finish. She is inspired by social causes and likes projects that can handle a good dose of eccentricity.
Praise

Praise

“Gravel presented a perfect sequence of fascinating facts with a delicate dash of icky…. It’s part of a series and we’re hoping the other books are just as good.”
The Globe and Mail

"The boldly colored cartoons and handwritten display fonts make this a very appealing package . . . Gravel tightrope-walks the line between gross and funny."
