Harriet's Hungry Worms

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 09 May 2023 0


Harriet's Hungry Worms, is a funny, engaging eco-story with delightful pictures, that invites young readers to follow the adventures of Harriet's ravenous compost worms.

It is interesting to see what they munch on for their wide weekly menu (including something from someone's lunchbox, so Mum didn't know the fruit wasn't eaten). 

Harriet’s nine-hundred-and-eighty-three hungry worms live in a shady corner of her backyard in a big, green box. They spend their days munching on anything from Aunt Tilda’s herbal teabags to the sports pages of Uncle Sam’s paper. Harriet watches and waits, eventually deciding the worms are ‘so BORING’. Until one day, the worms leave Harriet a big surprise … worm wee!

Packed with worm facts, Harriet’s Hungry Worms is the ideal companion for worm warriors and curious composters keen to roll their sleeves up and put their kitchen food scraps to good use.  

Continuing the sustainability message, inventive illustrations incorporating recycled materials bloom from each page, breathing beautiful life into this fun-filled story. 

Harriet's Hungry Worms is now available from EK Books.
