Book
Winnie Finn is crazy about earthworms and knows everything about them. When spring arrives in Quincy County, all she can think about is the county fair coming up. This year, she would like nothing more than to win a prize for her worms so that she might buy a shiny new wagon for transporting them around. Trouble is, there’s no prize at the fair for worms . . .

Bright, energetic illustrations accompany this jaunty tale about a young girl’s creativity that will inspire readers of all interests— but especially those with a love for something wiggly.

Praise for Winnie Finn, Worm Farmer

“The story presents such a winning heroine, Winnie, part-scientist, part-entrepreneur, that you may consider raising worms as a hobby.” —Chicago Tribune

“The back of the book has instructions for how to start your own worm farm to help your garden; which makes this book a great one for sparking a family project next summer.” —The News & Observer

“Winnie’s spunky, good-natured heart anchors a gentle and entertaining read.”—School Library Journal

“Hoyt’s sprightly cartoons add just the right amount of humorous action to Winnie’s worm-farming tasks, while Winnie’s winning personality allows readers to learn a bit about the positive aspects of worm composting. An author’s note includes directions for creating a worm farm and sources.” —Kirkus Reviews
