My Review

I can just imagine a nine-year old reading this book and feeling very tuned in to such a creative story. I love the characters, especially Sally and Jack. In this book, children will relate to Jack because he feels anxious about school, his friends, and whether or not his parents are proud of him. He knows that his older brother gets much praise, but he thinks he is worthless.

Jack has a dream about worms, and he becomes the King of worms. He saves a captured bird and gives the other worms adivce. When he wakes up, he realizes that it was only a dream. Jack has trouble in school and can’t stand his teacher, Mr. Prickles. Sally and Jack want to help him win the tastiest plant award, so they talk to all the worms. Now, how on earth can the worms help a plant?

The book is filled with middle-school silliness, but also addresses how children feel. This can help them to know that other children feel alone, too. In the end, Jack gets what he always wanted.
