What I Thought- The story shows that not all marriages follow traditional norms and love doesn’t need to be complicated. Worms are hermaphroditic so they make the perfect main characters for this book. This is a sweet story about how when you love someone so much, it doesn’t matter what it takes to be with that person for life. In the book, the worms end up splitting the outfits between the two (one has a veil and a tuxedo, the other a top hat and a dress), because they want to get married. I loved the cartoony illustrations and the sweet tone of the book – marriages are happy, so the writing style is happy, and the pictures are bright. I believe that this truly is a perfect picture book. *NOTE* I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book
