Bug in the Dark by Lee Kimber. Illus Paul Elder.
This is the first picture book I have read about a glow-worm.
It is from self publishing author Lee Kimber who tells a story of a glow-worm out of it’s comfort zone and looking for a way to get food and protect itself from enemies. He starts to discover his unique qualities and glows in the dark like a good worm should.
Told in rhyming verse that demands to be read allowed.
The real star is the illustrations by Paul Elder. His creation of the leafy environment that glow -worm finds himself in, is beautifully created. The glow-worm is adorable and the spider and weta exude charisma.
I read it to my granddaughters and they loved it. A worthy purchase for schools.
