Worm, Slug, Maggot & Leech and their Troublesome Transformation!
“The story tackles the sensitive topic of self-image and impact on self-esteem. It is ground breaking as it tackles the theme of body image in a way that is accessible for primary-aged children. Concerns about appearance are becoming increasingly common in this age group, and it is a difficult topic to tackle. The Worm, Slug, Maggot and Leech story is a fable that demonstrates the perils of wanting to change appearance to conform with a glamorous stereotype. The message of being happy in one’s skin is an important one, and the story provides a useful metaphor for discussion. Teachers and therapists will welcome this addition to their resources.” Mallory Henson, Senior Educational Psychologist
“Your story is thought-provoking and beautifully illustrated.” Jenny Mosley Consultancies
“This beautifully illustrated book captures an emerging mood. Young people are getting tired of our strident celebrity culture demanding perfect bodies. The deluge of no makeup selfies confirms what is happening. This delightful story is a further step in the right direction.” Dr D Williams, Psychiatrist
