How To Eat Fried Worms

Written by Thomas Rockwell • Illustrated by Emily McCully

The story starts when Tom wouldn’t eat his salmon for supper. The other boys stole peaches. Alan bet Billy $50 that he wouldn’t eat 15 worms. Billy and Tom are friends and Alan and Joe are friends. The story takes place outside at Billy’s dad’s barn. Alan and Billy get into a mud fight. Read this book to find out who wins the bet and who wins the fight.

The book was gross because there were worms in it and I think worms are gross! Billy ate worms in this book, yuck! When I read this book, I was glad because the boys worked things out. My favorite part of the story was when the boys had a mud fight. I think that would be fun.

I recommend this book to my class because I had fun reading it.
