Weakling Willie

For Weakling Willie, living the life of a Rhinoceros Beetle is hard …especially when his muscles don’t work right. Willie knew he was not strong and that his muscle weakness would make it difficult for him to face the challenges ahead that a Rhinoceros Beetle must face. Willie wonders every day why he was born as a Rhinoceros Beetle— the strongest creature on Earth— without strong muscles? Can he face the challenges a beetle must face in order to survive in the rainforest? Maybe Willie is stronger than he thinks! See how Willie, and his friends, learn to appreciate his other strengths. The author’s son has a metabolic disorder, Pompe Disease.
