First, this book is NOT written by Doreen Cronin nor illustrated by Harry Bliss. They are the creators of the original Diary of a Worm picture book. This book is a spin off based on that book. It is written as an early reader. I love that they took great characters and turned them into something interesting for early readers.

In this book, Worm's class has a pet--Nat the gnat. When it is worm's turn to take care of Nat, he opens the tank and loses Nat. He doesn't tell. Spider helps him to capture another gnat. Worm puts this gnat into the pet's tank and confesses to the class what happened. I will not spoil the end...

This book is a level one reader. The sentences are short and simple for easy reading. Yet there is a sprinkling of harder concepts to stretch the reader. The story is from Worm's perspective which makes it interesting and has plenty of humor to enjoy.

This story is even better than the first in this series. If more leveled readers were this interesting, I think more kids would be chomping at the bit to read!
