Introducing Wally The Worm by Chris Parmenter
Wally the Worm is a picture book and a musical play for children to perform and enjoy. It was written by Remus Volunteer – Chris Parmenter – and is beautifully illustrated by children’s illustrator Colin Wyatt (of Poddington Pea fame).
Wally is one of the many insects and creatures who live and work in the garden of Tony the gardener. He is considered to be dull and unimportant by his more colourful companions who don’t include him in their fun and games. But when danger strikes and the garden is threatened, Wally may be the only one Tony can turn to for help. Will his courage save the day and earn him the respect he deserves?
“I recently purchased the Wally the Worm book and CD for my 4yr old niece for her birthday. Although I didn’t listen to the CD, I did read the book. How absolutely delightful! It’s a story that reminds children (and adults) that it’s the heart of the person (or in this instance, worm) that is important and not the external finery. Its beautifully written, will delight adults and children alike and the illustrations are just glorious.”
