Description

One day, Aaron and Ryan decide to adopt a pair of worms. They have a wonderful afternoon playing with their worms--named Pinky and Worm, by the way--but soon realize that what these little guys really want to do is race. The boys do everything they can to help: encouraging them, nurturing them, and making maps and sleep-stations to plant en route. Somehow things don't seem to move along terribly fast, and the boys actually lose track of their small squirmy buddies!
