How To Eat Fried Worms

Written by Thomas Rockwell • Illustrated by Emily McCully

Reviewed by Kirsten A. (age 7)

Alan bet Billy that he couldn’t eat 15 worms in 15 days. Billy ate his 1st worm. He acted silly when he ate the 2nd worm. The boys got into a fight because Alan and Joe were cheating. Joe glued 2 worms together so Billy would not win. Billy, Tom, Alan, and Joe got into a mud fight. Billy got hurt and he started to cry and so did Alan.

This story was gross because Billy ate worms. This book reminded me of when my cousin and me got into a snowball fight. I liked Tom because Tom is Billy’s friend. He protected Billy by making sure he ate the worms.

I recommend this book to ages 7 and up. People who like gross stuff would like this book.
