I was asked if I’d like to review Mr Men: Walter The Worm by Roger Hargreaves and Adam Hargreaves, and I said yes.
My girls love the Mr Men and Little Miss books, not only do they have the collection of the original books in box sets, they also have the box sets on DVD and they’ve got their favourites in plush, (soft toys).
After his Dad (Roger) died, his son, Adam, continued to write and illustrate the books.
Thankfully, there’s now another book available for children to read, Walter the Worm, he’s number 49 in the Mr Men books.
When my youngest found out there was a book about a worm she was pleased. She loves nature, and loves being in the garden. Her favourites in the garden wildlife are worms, (she finds what they do with the soil interesting) and snails, (she likes how they can carry their homes).
Walter lives in a lovely little hole in the grass, and he loves where he lives. However, he doesn’t like the person who lives above ground, as he cuts the grass, uses a sprinkler and plays football.
One morning he went for an early morning walk, but he wasn’t the only one awake. A little bird was up early as well, he’d been taught how to catch worms! When the bird spotted Walter, and Walter spotted the bird he knew he was in big trouble.
That’s all I’m going to say about the story as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who wants to read it.
Adam Hargreaves has written another lovely story to add to his late father’s collection of Mr Men books. :-)
My girls enjoyed both the story and the colourful illustrations. :-)
My eldest, (7yrs) loved reading this to her younger sister, (3½yrs).
