Hi, I'm Billy and I want to tell you something. I made a bet to eat 15 worms in 15 days. If I eat all 15 worms I get $50. If I get the $50. I can buy a mini bike! The mini bike is sold by my grandfather. The mini bike is going to be mine If I can win the bet and get Alan's $50! Will I eat all of the worms and buy the mini bike with the fifty dollars?

This book s about a boy named Billy who makes a bet to eat 15 worms in 15 days. If he does not eat all of the worms, he has to pay Alan $50 and he can buy the mini-bike. Billy's grandfather is selling the bike.

My favorite part was when Billy made the bet and went to a nearby tree and ate his first worm. I liked this part because he went and got the first worm over with. Billy is my favorite character because he didn't give up, he kept trying to win the bet. When I read when he ate his first worm I felt shivers because I couldn't imagine eating a worm.

I recommend this book because It's about money and most people love money! Most people love $50.
