Ear Worm!

By Jo Knowles
Illustrated by Galia Bernstein

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head that you just can't shake?

Shimmy shimmy no sashay sings little worm as he wriggles along. He's got a song stuck in his head – he's got an ear worm! But where has it come from? It's not Owl's song. And it's not Chipmunk's song either. Will Little Worm ever discover where the catchy tune in his head came from?

  • A very modern concept, wonderfully illustrated in a classic style, with muted palette and expressive characters.
  • Introduces a term and occurrence that may be new to young readers, but is sure to be familiar once understood – and serve as inspiration for children to find their own songs and dances.
  • Delightful cumulative tale of individuality and cooperation.
