They Didn’t Teach This in Worm School, is a funny, completely humorous, and very silly book that I would say is aimed at 7 years plus children, those that are confident readers. Marcus is a worm. He likes being a worm and doesn’t desire much in life. Laurence is a bird, looks like a pigeon, but he thinks he’s a flamingo. He has wild dreams and one very special to him. He wants to go an live in Africa, Lake Nakuru in Kenya to be precise, to be with his family, the flamingos. After nearly eating Marcus, they come to a deal. Marcus will navigate Laurence to Africa, although Marcus doesn’t even know where Africa is, nor how to read a map, and Laurence won’t eat him. The book is an astonishing tale of two very different creatures, the predator and the prey, becoming friends, and going through a lot of mishaps, making friends and overcoming enemies, on their long journey. I think this book is brilliant. It had me laughing out loud at times. It has a great plot, with perfect characters. Marcus is full of wisdom, where Laurence is a little naive. I feel that the author did a wonderful job having Marcus narrator the story. There are illustrations on every page, a mixture of grey, white and red, some with comic book style quotes. This made the story more enjoyable, and a page turner. I think kids looking for a humorous book will love this story of one worms tale of survival, and finding friendship in an unusual circumstance.
