Boobela and Worm

Book 1, Boobela

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Boobela is a giant - a young, shy and rather lonely giant. Worm is a worm - wise and opinonated, but above all, he's a clever and loyal friend. They live in a world that's a lot like ours, but not quite. When Boobela meets Worm, she has the chance to overcome her fears, pursue her strange and magical powers ... and have lots of funny, exciting and heart-stopping adventures with the kids at the balloon club, on her gran's magic island and at the beach.

"In Boobela and Worm, the shy lonely giantess has no friends until a worm tells her that her feet stink.  This is an excellent beginning and the tone of affectionate honesty is kept up, as a series of small adventures unfold.  Joe Friedman's Worm is so gentle, funny and wise that it comes as no surprise to find that he unlocks Boobela's ability to heal others.  Sam Child's lively drawings accompany these tales about the transformative power of putting yourself into somebody else's shoes.

The pictures and interesting typography make the book an ideal stepping stone between picture books and novels.  There are not enough good books for this age range, and Friedman's sympathetic approach will make this one to reread."   
Amanda Craig The Times

Later The Times chose Boobela as one of the Best Books of the Year.  "Wise, warm and wonderful."

"Young children everywhere will delight in the adventures of Boobela and Worm."
