Year of the Worm (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Peter Wrigley is small and thin, so it's not surprising that he's known as 'Worm'. He's always wanted to do something brave, but usually ends up as a laughing stock. Then a walking holiday in the Lake District changes everything. This very readable and sensitively written story will encourage any child who feels 'different' or who is teased or bullied. It shows that each person has the potential to achieve. First published by Puffin in 1986 with sales of over 29,000 copies. "...a first rate adventure story and more. A good read. Highly recommended ..." Books for your Children "An old theme refreshed by a strong, direct narrative style and a firm grasp on simple but telling details of personality." Growing Point "This book is about the routine, everyday kind of bullying many children have to contend with. A thoughtful and unflashy book about real people coping with real situations." Times Educational Supplement '...a great read, with sympathetic characters who are coping with tricky situations. It is a book that will encourage any child who feels 'different' or who is teased or bullied.' Education Today
