How To Eat Fried Worms

Written by Thomas Rockwell • Illustrated by Emily McCully

Reviewed by Emily M. (age 8)

It all began on an ordinary day. Alan and Billy made a very unusual bet that Billy could not eat 15 worms in 15 days. Alan said he would pay Billy $50 if he won. After that Alan and Billy got in to a fight. Do you think they made up? Read this book to find out.

My favorite part was the mud fight!!! I think it would be fun to have a mud fight. Billy was my favorite character. I liked him because he was brave to eat worms. I thought it was gross when they were eating the worms. I thought I would be sick!

I recommend this book for ages 8 to 14. Younger children wouldn't be able to read the words by themselves.
