Booklist Reviews 2015 December #1

Worm and Worm love each other and want to get married. A cheerful assortment of cartoon bugs, rendered in pencil and Photoshop on open, white backgrounds, give the couple a lot of advice about wedding traditions. They'll need a "best beetle," "bride's bees," a white dress, a tuxedo, and so on. None of that stuff matters to Worm and Worm, but they're agreeable. They'll wear rings like belts (they don't have fingers) and get cake for their friends, even though they "only eat dirt." When asked who's the bride and who's the groom, however, they're firm: "We can be both." Cricket objects, since that's "not how it's done," and the worms cheerfully reply, "Then we'll just change how it's done." This timely title is a warm and easy way to introduce the idea of same-sex marriage to children, and given that many worm species are hermaphroditic, the character choice is particularly apt. Many children will grasp the larger message—marriage is about love—while others may simply enjoy the warm characters and comical story. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Fall

When Worm and Worm decide to marry, their animal friends offer "that's how it's always been done"type advice, some ridiculous ("You'll need to get rings"); characters appear against white backdrops, which distills the story's abiding humor. Readers will be won over long before this higher-order message book gently broaches its love-is-love concept ("which one of you is the bride?").

PW Reviews 2015 October #1

How do you explain a revolution to a young audience? This book is a terrific start. Worm and Worm are in love and want to get married. All of their invertebrate friends are good with that, as long as the couple has a traditional wedding with all the trimmings: a cake, attendants, dancing, rings, and an officiant (a suitably officious cricket). The worms are slightly dazed but grateful for their friends' enthusiasm, and they even realize that, lacking fingers, they can wear the rings as belts. Then their friends make one more demand: there can only be one bride and one groom: that's "how it's always been done." And that's when the worms show they have a spine. "We can be both," they insist, mixing and matching veils, tuxes, dresses, and top hats. "We'll just change how it's done." Debut author Austrian proves that it's possible to be silly and incisive at the same time, while Curato (the Little Elliot books) works in a stripped-down style that subtly reinforces the "all you need is love" message. Ages 4–8. Illustrator's agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Jan.)
