Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

One of Time Out's "LGBTQ+ books for kids to read during Pride Month," this irresistible picture book is a celebration of love in all its splendid forms from debut author J. J. Austrian and the acclaimed author-illustrator of Little Elliot, Big City, Mike Curato.

You are cordially invited to celebrate the wedding of a worm...and a worm.

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.

Perfect for fans of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, And Tango Makes Three, and The Sissy Duckling.

Review Quote*"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."
Review Quote*"How do you explain a revolution to a young audience? This book is a terrific start."
Review Quote*"With its cute critters, sweet story, and messages of equality, this is a first purchase that celebrates the fact that love always wins."
Review Quote*"A witty and playful story...Adults looking for some assistance in explaining marriage equality will find this a concise and useful too."
