Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You


The Book

Clicket Cricket is an endearing character who loves music.  He is very shy because he stammers when he talks which makes him feel nervous and embarrassed to let his voice be heard.  His friend Perm Worm suggests that the two should attend a music concert, performed by The Wormicles, a very popular group. The fans are super excited and they join in with cheering and singing along. The group starts off with one of the songs that every one knows called "In The Soil."  After the song finishes Clicket Cricket makes the amazing discovery that while he was singing every word with the lead singer not once did he stammer.... NOT ONCE!  

" Not only was Cricket able to sing without his stammer, but he found he was pretty good at singing too.  It had given him a new-found confidence."  

Boldly he asks his friend Perm Worm if he would like to start their own band.  The answer is a resounding YES and The Rhythm and Bugs band is born! 

The illustrations are colourful, vibrant and kid-friendly.  The message  promotes learning and discussion.  Kids will get word that uniqueness can be a powerful thing.  The book touches on the themes of friendship, acceptance and kindness.  It inspires individuals to celebrate who they are created to be.   I highly recommend it.
