Lowly Worm's life is full of wonderful adventures-and that is why he has long been one of Richard Scarry's most beloved characters. And he's the shining star of this lively and funny collection. Young children will happily follow Lowly as he takes an unexpected ride on a hot-air balloon; helps Huckle find just the right gift for Mother Cat; and gets lost on a subway during a visit to the city.
With everything from bike crashes to a big birthday surprise, these stories show exactly why Lowly is one special worm!

Legendary American artist and writer Richard Scarry wrote and illustrated more than 300 books and has sold over 200 million copies worldwide.From Publishers Weekly:
Scarry's big-hearted, sneaker-wearing worm takes center stage in this posthumously published roundup of all-new escapades. At Lowly Worm's side throughout is amiable Huckle the Cat: the two ride the roller coaster at the Busytown Fair, build a "castle" out of driftwood on the beach, make a birthday gift for Huckle's mother, spend an eventful day in the big city with the Cat family and visit the hospital after a bicycle mishap injures Lowly. With its peripatetic mini-plots, appealingly cluttered art and unfailing cheerfulness, this is standard Scarry fare, right down to its predictably happy ending, in which Lowly (who thought everyone had forgotten his birthday) is given a surprise party. In both art and text, the humor strikes an admirable balance of the understated and the obvious. Kids will chuckle at the portrayal of the interior of a restaurant called Noodle's, where pasta is draped everywhere?even over the waitress, in place of her hair; and at the ludicrously large cast that covers the wounded worm's all-important single "foot." Ages 3-8.
