    1. I had to read others' reviews to understand this. I thought it was going to be a fable about a grumpy, hermit-ish eccentric, and it kinda is, but it doesn't resonate with me. I guess my personal take-away is that even when I live alone I'll need to clean up messes because it's not just the others who make them.(Pahrump)

    2. While some girls just wanna have fun, a rat like Edgar just wants to be left alone. Consequently, all the other animals in the barnyard have learned to stay away from him. When it seems that a lowly earthworm dares to follow him, Edgar goes ballistic and tries everything he can think of to get rid of the persistent creature. The illustrations and the story's conclusion are filled with humorous elements and a nifty lesson about looking closer to home for the cause--and solution--to your problems. [...]

    3. Hilarious. This one just struck me as comical. Edgar, the grumpy curmudgeon rat, is being followed by a worm. No matter what Edgar does the worm is behind him. One to read aloud to kids.

    4. Edgar is a cranky rat who isn't friends with any of the other farm animals. One day he goes a bit mad, convinced an earthworm is following him. The illustrations are clever - split into above and beneath the soil. We watch the earthworms travel back and forth while Edgar's antics grow more and more frenetic while trying to catch the mysterious earthworm. At the end, the joke is on Edgar.

    5. Oh my. This picture book by Jean-Francois Dumont made me laugh. Poor Edgar just really wants to be left alone and is being followed by an annoying little creature.So funny. Can you figure out who is following Edgar?Read and find out.Published by Eerdman's Books for Young Readers@ebyrbooks

    6. The self-absorbed rat just can't see the forest for the trees, er, rather, can't see his tail for the worms! What fun youngsters will have with this one, if they can get past Edgar being a rat!Illustations give us the barn yard as well as the underground view were the real worms are!

    7. a clever story, with a fairly predictable ending. i did enjoy the dual illustrations. I did not find the story that interesting or compelling, but the six year old to whom i read it requested it more than once.

    8. Edgar the rat likes being alone and then a pesky worm starts following him everywhere! I love the ground-level perspective of the illustrations and the joke at the end is a funny surprise.

    9. Edgar, the rat lives on a farm. He just wants to be alone but an earthworm seems to follow him wherever he goes. No one will help him get rid of the earthworm. Surprise ending
