    As a person who can only draw worms, I loved this book! You will only find worms in it, of course, and most of the time they all look the same, as the worms I draw look, but it has lots of humor. It also allows the reader to do some counting, and use his/her imagination a lot. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE beautifully illustrated picture books. Actually I am kind of an addict to them. But this book also proves how you can make an amazing picture book with only simple, basic, bare illustrations too.Age range: 3 to 7 years old.I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Aunque (quiero suponer) es un libro para que los peques aprendan a contar en inglés, I Can Only Draw Worms me hizo morir de la risa muchas veces aún teniendo unas... ¿qué, 35 páginas?El autor te avisa desde el vamos que sólo puede dibujar gusanos (lombrices queda mejor nosierto), pero son gusanos con anteojos, que van al baño, que buscan a una lombriz perdida y que montan un unicornio (pero el autor nos dibuja a una de las lombrices porque, de nuevo, es lo único que puede dibujar).Muy bueno. Qué lindo ser adulta (ponele) y poder disfrutar de estos libros.

    I want to give this book more than 5 stars. This book needs to be read cover to cover then re-read again and again. Read it aloud, read with gusto and share with everyone. It is hilarious. Rest assured there is no offensive material - we're not talking about 'those' worms. Each of these worms is quite unique ... or are they? Pay attention from the beginning for Will is quite explicit about the details of each worm and you will be caught out if you let your concentration lapse.Will Babbitt parodies the picture book format, counting books and pretty well just pokes fun at himself. The illustrations are ridiculously bright ... we're talking fluorescent. I'm sure this book will glow in the dark. Please read the dedication page that is at the end of the book and the endorsements on the back cover. Will return this book with great reluctance to the library ... only after the copy I have bought arrives. This one is for the big kids who enjoy dry humour.

    I won this book thanks to a Facebook competition run by In The Good Books blog page. I found this book quirky and amusing as I read it to my daughter. She loves trying to grab it and read to me and the bright colours help engage her. The introduction of the ten worms is funny and amusing.

    When I first saw I Can Only Draw Worms on NetGalley I knew I had to read it, as someone who can't draw, and when I do its the request to draw a car for a baby, I had to know what this book was about.I Can Only Draw Worms is a counting book as well as a book that makes you laugh out loud with some disastrous attempts at drawing worms, or losing them to the same colour page, and mistaking worm one with worm three, and lets not forget worm eight and eight-and-a-half.With worms wearing glasses, and riding flying unicorns.....there is not a single page that you can get through without cracking a smile.My only issue with the book itself is the formatting, which did disrupt the flow of the book on occasion, either with the writing or with the images themselves.Final VerdictI Can Only Draw Worms is a funny, quick book, and I can't wait to share it with my Niece.

    THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ. First of all, it took me like 5 minuets, so you don’t have the excuse of not having enough time to read it. Second of all, it’s so hilarious and relatable. I personally prefer YA books, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.

    Loved the humour in this book as well as the beautiful dedication in the back, "For Zero-who should be at the start of every counting book."

    A book which, as the title says, has only worms in it. The humour won't suit everyone, but I thought it was really funny.

    I'm sure that the repetitiveness was meant for the advantage of the children. I'm wondering what age group the Author was attempting to appeal to. I believe that under 6 years would get a bit tiresome of the length and above that age would feel a little confused as to the repeated phrases. The accident and the potty was a little bit much but I get the notion that it might appeal to some children. I'm sure my 3 year old and my 9 year old will see it different ways than my 13 and 17 year old.

    What can I say...I loved this book. It took me a little by surprise to be honest, it was light on words and light on pictures but it had a story to tell and it was absolutely funny and engaging. Will Mabbit can only draw worms, hence why the book is about worms. He can't draw flying unicorns or outer space, or even the amazing adventure that worm six had, so this book is solely about worms.The story starts with one worm and then two and then when they are side by side which one is which? They all look the same but Will knows they are all different. The book gets funnier and funnier and what I found the funniest was worm eight and eight and a half (You will have to read the book to know what I mean...go on it's worth it!)The colours throughout the book are either really bright or black and white, each page interactive in its simplicity. The book teaches the children to count and it could be said that apart from the humour that the counting is the focal point of the book, however I do not think it is that simple. I think for every reader there is a different interpretation.I highly recommend this book because it was about worms because Will Mabbitt can only draw worms!

    I suppose this is a counting book, for the very, very young reader (ie with someone else doing the actual reading). But it's such a crackpot idea, in such a droll delivery, it made me laugh at the fun of it all, and it will probably serve to make a book the adult doesn't mind being pestered over revisiting. Simply daft, and daftly simple, it's just great.

    What a fabulous book! It arrived in my shop today and went straight into my bag! Loved the graphics, the concept and how utterly silly it is! He may only be able to draw worms, but apparently they are one of the funniest most dynamic animals on earth, and I would challenge anyone to read this book without laughing!

    Amusing but it's a very particular kind of humour. May or may not be a hit depending on the child.
