Wilton has no tendrils, no friends and no idea why he's so different to all the other microbes in his stretch of the intestine. But now he's had enough. He's going where no microbe has gone before. To the end of the known world, where the sludge gods dwell. To discover if he truly is a microbe. Or maybe a worm? Or possibly just a noodle that can talk? After an epic journey, Wilton and his new friend Algy find their way back home, and discover that the true key to saving each other, their world and their 'janet' lies not with the sludge gods, but with themselves.

Grade 3-5–Wilton, a fat, outcast worm, and a parasitic microbe named Algy, befriend each other while inside a human body in this humorous tale by Morris Gleitzman. Wilton is on a mission to find other like worms and a place to fit in. Algy is trying to save the human world that he and the other parasites live in. Their journey together takes them outside the human body, into the body of a dog, and back to the human girl to wage war against killer fungi. The author reads the story with feeling, showing the characters' emotions through the changes in his voice. Primitive sounding music is played briefly between the chapters. This quirky fantasy is sure to attract fans of the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey (Scholastic) and other gross humor series.–Cynthia Grabke, Thayer Public Library, Braintree, MA
