Another amazing book by Julia Donaldson. Superworm is great at helping out his friends. He is super strong and super long and will turn into anything to help his friends. He can be a skipping rope, a fishing rod or even a superworm lasso to save baby toad from the road. When a wicked Wizard Lizard and servant crow capture Superworm his insect and toad friends must work together to save him. Will their teamwork save their super friend? A lovely book with the usual sing song feel of any Julia Donaldson book. We loved it.

Superworm is long and strong and always comes to the rescue until he gets caught by the crow and lizard. Superworm is rescued and carries on being everything to everyone! My Granddaughter spotted the mouse from the Gruffallo. This book has great rhyme and fabulous illustrations , just what you would expect from the wonderful pair that is Donaldson and Scheffler. Highly recommended

If you like Julia Donaldson books then you will enjoy this one. Another amazing book.

Superworm is a great friend and very helpful so when hes in trouble all of his friends work together to save him.

You can tell straight away its a Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler book just by the illustrations bright and colourful and a great book to read.

I have it in hardbook but I think I would prefer paperback

Another wonderful pairing of Donaldson and Scheffler. The character of Superworm is very sweet and funny and three year old twin girls really love it. The story is a tale of friendship and how we can achieve anything if we just try.

My son and I have enjoyed all of Julias books and this one is no exception. I love the rhyming style and it is something that my boy has loved as a small boy and continues to enjoy. These are classic books to go back to and this one is a funny addition.

Another classic from Julia Donaldson, this fun tale has superb repeating rhymes which even the youngest pre-readers can join in with. The illustrations are great.
We return to this as a bedtime story every so often and despite having read it now loads of times, we all still love it.

One of my sons favourite books, this is one that is sure to be repeatedly read for several days in a row. Super worm is loved by most of his fellow creatures because he is both a happy little thing and is very good at rescuing them from the scrapes they get in to. But not all creatures love him... What happens when he is captured by a lizard? Can his friends help him?  Overall this is everything you would expect from a Julia Donaldson book, great plot and rhymes accompanied by exciting illustrations.

My daughter and I love this book. We originally had a set of Donaldson/Scheffler books but it didn't include this one so we were delighted when we found it in the bookshop. We love to read it together - Super Worm is a fun and popular worm but it turns out that not everyone is his friend and he gets into a scrape. The text is lovely rhymes and the pictures are classic Axel Scheffler - fun for both kids and adults.

This book was great for my 6 year old boy. He requested that we buy it after having it read to him in class.There were goodies and baddies and it had enough suspense to keep him hooked. This is definitely one of his favourite books and he now knows it word for word!

As with every Julia Donaldson book this is a great story. Superworm is always willing to help when he' needed, so when he's in need of help everyone helps him. Lovely illustrations from Axel Scheduler as always. 
We first read this when it came out to my then 6 year old daughter who loved it, and now my 2 year old grandson listens with the same enthusiasm.

My son loves Julia Donaldson books and he also adores superheros so this book was bound to be a big hit - and it has been. They use of rhyme and repetition  is excellent - which is to be expected from Donaldson books. The story is great and all about friends working together to save the day. This is a great bedtime book to read!!

We've been reading lots of Julia Donaldson books because the children love her rhythmic rhyming text and this one did not disappoint. The children enjoyed joining in with the repeated section "Superworm is super-long; Superworm is super-strong", etc and made up actions to go with it. They are also quite into superhero stories at the moment so they enjoy the villainous lizard and hero in peril storyline. A great read and we followed up by investigating what we could make/do with skipping rope worms outdoors just like superworm makes himself into fishing lines, hats, etc in the story.

Actually one of the better Julia Donaldson books.  It rhymes really well, and the characters are all mini-beasts which fits in really well with the common pre-school and early years theme that explores bugs. Funny too.

I must say it does become more enjoyable if you watch the 'super worm rap' on youtube.

The whole family loves this books and Mummy (me) & Daddy love reading this as a bedtime story. The story is beautifully written with detailed coulourful illustrations on each page. We love that Super Worm is a hero helping his bug friends in all sorts of wacky ways. My children love the Super Worm chant ''Super Worm is super long. Super Worm is super long'' and is often sung when we are doing the weekly food shop heehee. The story is magical and made my two youngsters want to get outside to do some bug hunting. All of the characters in the book were brilliant and added to the story. My two children love this book so much that my little girl wants to be Super Worm for world book day and my little lad wants to be Wizard Lizard. This will be a book that I know that my children will want to read to their children one day.

We are big fans of Julia Donaldson's books and always buy them as soon as a new one comes out.
We love the rhyming and Axel Scheffler's illustrations bring the story to life in a wonderful way. This story has a twist that has the reader worrying and all of the animals working together to save the worm. It is, essentially, a story of good succeeding over bad.
We love finding the Gruffalo hiding in Julia's books....this one was quite well disguised!

Superworm is a hero..... helping his friends - fishing spider out from a well, rescuing toad from a busy road, helping friends play skipping by acting as rope....
But who will help Superworm, when he's captured by a wicked Wizard Lizard? Thankfully the friends he's helped in the past have a plan..... Lovely illustrations and fun rhymes.... and is that a gruffalo toy hiding on the rubbish heap? 

We first discovered the book doing the Superworm trail at our local English Forestry Commission site - they have done a number on Donaldson/Scheffler tie-in walks (Gruffalo/Gruffalo child/ Superworm/Stickman) - definitely worth keep an eye out for them. Adds another dimension to the book.
