When a worm meets a special worm and they fall in love, you know what happens next: They get married!

But their friends want to know-who will wear the dress? And who will wear the tux?
The answer is: it doesn’t matter. Because Worm loves Worm.

This irresistible picture book is a celebration of love in all its splendid forms.


“Austrian and Curato turn the simple wedding of two worms into a three-ring circus that slyly turns the whole controversy over same-sex versus heterosexual marriage on its head… As in life, love conquers all.”  ~ KIRKUS (starred review.)

“How do you explain a revolution to a young audience? This book is a terrific start…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.”~ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
