Wormhead - DVD Synopsis
Narrated by Zoelle Montgomery
Jesse is excited about entering the second grade – she
Wormhead is a wonderful, gentle story about accepting people as they are. Fear, suspicion and dislike are transformed by the simple act of talking, a reminder that is as important for adults as it is for children. Stella Mckeown's tender images work flawlessly & Rich McKeown’s music blends perfectly to enrich this DVD. The soothing cadence of Zoelle Montgomery's voice truly brings Wormhead to life. This project was beyond doubt a family affair! Carolyn McKeown, the author was Rich McKeown’s wife, Stella McKeown the artist his mother & Zoelle Montgomery, the narrator, his aunt.
