Rosy Cole is thrilled when Mrs. Oliphant selects her idea, “Nature’s Gifts,” as one of the themes for the school’s fall fair. Rosy’s team will be gathering rocks, shells, and sea-glass, and with a little bit of paint, they’ll turn natural history into works of art. Now that’s what Rosy calls imagination!

But Rosy’s imagination gets the better of her when she decides to babysit a friend’ composting worms. With thousands of wigglers to take care of, things get more than a little messy. How will Rosy ever get out of this one?

Watch Out, World--Rosy Cole is Going Green is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Let’s come up with some great ideas.”
Natalie Pringle raised her hand. “I can bring two dozen copies of the new DVD Captain Nature,” she called out.
