Bug in the Dark by Lee Kimber. Illus Paul Elder.

bug in the darkBug in the Dark by Lee Kimber. Illus Paul Elder. Pub. Kimberwrite, 2013.

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.
