There’s a lot going on in the life of our little creature in A Grub’s Tale. We see how his life is a mystery to him and without a parent or brothers and sisters he is worried and unsure of his future.

A grub’s tale gives us a chance explore with the children the changes that can happen in their lives – both physically and mentally – and we discover how writing about change gives children an opportunity to explore their feelings and perhaps share their feelings with others.
