"Rudy has anxiety issues…This loving family, however, knows how to work together to help Rudy with his worries. Their calm and wise approach is just one of the winning aspects of this simple, down-to-earth (literally, with all the worms) early chapter book that's jam-packed with likable, well-realized characters and a compassionate but never didactic message. A worthy addition to collections for budding readers." - Kirkus Reviews
"This contemporary, fish-out-of-water tale is straightforward and engaging. The characters are fully developed and relatable…The pencil artwork is spare yet adds to the story. Educators will welcome this solid tale packed with facts about rural life…The language is easy and will appeal to reluctant readers. A strong addition to chapter book collections. This slender title is abundant in its depictions of fear, loss, and respect for nature. " - School Library Journal
