The Bookworm is a character in Toy Story 3. He started out as a minor antagonist, but in the end was reformed.

Bookworm is an intelligent worm toy with a built-in flashlight.

He keeps a "library" of sorts in a closet at Sunnyside Daycare Center, which holds instruction manuals for many different toys, including Buzz Lightyear. He gives Lotso a manual to reset Buzz, turning Buzz evil as well.

Later, after Bookworm hands "Spacesuit Ken" (unaware that it's really Barbie in disguise) a Buzz Lightyear manual, he reacts with disgust when he discovers that "Ken" is actually wearing high heels.

After Lotso is removed from Sunnyside, it can be implied that Bookworm has reformed, as with the case of the other Sunnyside toys who has previously worked under Lotso. During the film credits, Bookworm is seen to be happily using his flashlight to light up a disco ball when a disco is being held in the Butterfly Room.

Bookworm appears to have been based on the Glo Worm toys of the 1980s.

Quotes: "Here it is. It was filed under 'Lightyear'." - Bookworm, after finding Buzz's manual, and then throwing it over to Lotso.
