9780143301967: Worm Story

Bigger and fatter than all the other microbes in the valley, Wilton feels ostracised and out of place. But even more worryingly, their world has become unhealthy and toxic with mass illness and flash storms. Setting out to find out what is wrong, Wilton meets Algy, a tiny microbe small enough to sit on his shoulder (and take refuge in his guts) who accompanies Wilton on his quest. Taking a wrong turn in an effort to escape some killer fungus, they inadvertently end up outside - and discover (thanks to some helpful bacteria) that the world in which they live is actually one giant organism called Janet.

Product Description:

Bigger and fatter than all the other microbes in the valley, Wilton feels ostracised and out of place. But even more worryingly, their world has become unhealthy and toxic with mass illness and flash storms. Then Wilton meets Algy, a tiny microbe small enough to sit on his shoulder (and take refuge in his guts) who accompanies Wilton on his quest to find out what's wrong. Taking a wrong turn in an effort to escape some killer fungus, they inadvertently end up outside - and discover (thanks to some helpful bacteria) that the world in which they live is actually one giant organism called Janet.

Product Description:

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.
