Quotes

'Coulthard is a fine writer'

Yorkshire Times

'I thought I knew quite a bit about earthworms – until I picked up this charming little book ... This is an easily digestible compendium of everything earthworm'

Nick Baker, TV presenter and naturalist

'A jaunt through the life of the earthworm incorporates sections such as: Can earthworms see? Which end of an earthworm is which? How long do earthworms live? (Over a decade in some cases, apparently.) And can you train a worm? Yes really! So while on the surface of it a book about what is basically a bendy brown tube with 'a head and a bum', as the author puts it, might not sound like a scintillating read, it really is ... A gem of a book'

Country Smallholding

'Sally Coulthard profiles these misunderstood creatures, offering a feast of quirky facts to answer all your curiosities'

Grow Your Own

'The author provides a complete profile of earthworms by answering 50 questions and including practical advice and quirky facts'

Garden Answers

'Many wonderful wormy tales unearthed by Coulthard ... [A] smart little book ... There's plenty of country lore too, and entertaining summaries of scientific studies'
