This funny, engaging eco story invites young readers to follow the adventures of Harriet’s ravenous compost worms as they munch their way through their wide and wonderful weekly menu.

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.

  • Unlike many of the word heavy, fact-based environmental books on the shelves for children, Harriet’s Hungry Worms is a light-hearted, engaging bedtime eco story that can be read and enjoyed again and again. 
  • Inventive illustrations incorporating recycled materials bloom from each page, broadening the experience for young readers and inviting them to delve deeper into sustainability.
