In the vein of THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR, Leonid Gore follows a curious worm through die-cut pages to discover what different animals like to eat for lunch.

"Who on earth would eat worms for lunch?" the curious little leaf-loving worm wants to know....
Not the mouse who likes cheese. Not the little girl, who loves spaghetti and ice cream! Not the cow, nor the bee, nor the monkey.... But when a fish reveals what he most desires for lunch--wiggly, wiggly worms--our little worm goes quickly on his way....
In this funny, lighthearted romp that celebrates indivudal taste, young readers will relish guessing what each different animal calls lunch. And they'll be hungry to read this one again!
