Creativity and perseverance lead to unexpected success for a little worm who goes after an apple high up in a tree

The apple is up high. Toto is down low.
A bird flies by. Toto has an idea.

And so this hilariously expressive little worm gets busy creating plan after plan to reach his desired meal. His crafty strategies are successfully executed but miserably unproductive... until the opportunity presents itself and Toto seizes the moment without foresight. With just the perfect balance of predictability and surprise, this tale reads like an animated short that the reader will want to see again and again.

It's a cool book because I get to see that the worm could fly with a parachute. (reviewed by my kindergardner)

While this book make look innocuous, there is definitely a surprise ending that pleases children and adults alike. I've used this with toddlers to great success, as the pictures are easy to see and the action is easy to follow thanks to a limited color palette.
