Rosy Cole is thrilled when Mrs. Oliphant selects her idea, “Nature’s Gifts,” as one of the themes for the school’s fall fair. Rosy’s team will be gathering rocks, shells, and sea-glass, and with a little bit of paint, they’ll turn natural history into works of art. Now that’s what Rosy calls imagination!
But Rosy’s imagination gets the better of her when she decides to babysit a friend’ composting worms. With thousands of wigglers to take care of, things get more than a little messy. How will Rosy ever get out of this one?
