NPR's Michele Norris talks with children's book author Doreen Cronin and New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss. Together, they've released Diary of a Worm, a new children's book told from the perspective a young male worm who's actually a lot like many children. The book details a year in the life of this little fellow, who wears a red baseball cap and lives with his mother, father, grandfather and sister.
