Children's LiteratureThe indomitable Worm returns for his third adventure. Author and illustrator Kathy Caple's cartoon-strip style boxes document his woes in the quest of earning enough money to buy paints so he can enter an art contest at Buzzy's Art Gallery. He tries babysitting (tricky for an arms-challenged creature), housecleaning (No, Worm, vacuum cleaners are not meant to suck up everything!), newspaper delivery (his aim is a little off), and sign painting. Sign painting? Aha! The perfect job for a budding artist, one would think. Yet . . . Needless to say, Worm perseveres to a happy, creative, and uplifting ending. Caple's humor-with-a-message is kid friendly, and her watercolor illustrations of the friendly little town's streets, shops, and critter inhabitants are low key but pleasant. 2004, Candlewick, Ages 2 to 6.
