I truly enjoyed The Worm Whisperer by Betty Hicks.It definitely gets a ribbit from me. Ellis was a great character. He truly wanted to help out his family and he had a special way with animals. About halfway through the book I thought I knew how it was going to end and then...surprise...it didn't. Good job!! The ending wasn't "everything out perfectly" but it was "everything turns out" which is how a book should be. This book will be perfect in my library next year.
