One day when Gobblit
was reading a book
about pirates and ships
and a guy with a hook

He turned the page quickly
to see what was next
and a strange little worm
wiggled out of the text.

"My gosh! Who are you?",
shouted Gobblit with a start.

"I am Dolloby Bookworm"
he said, "and I'm smart."


"Well, you look like a worm
and you live in a book
so I guess for right now buddy,
you're off the hook"

"But why are you here?
Were you reading along?"

"No, silly, I'm here to fix
what you've done wrong."
