I really enjoyed this book. It kind of had me worried at the beginning because I was not sure if Billy could eat all 15 worms. I wouldnít want to. One of my favorite parts is when Tom, Alan and Joe go away for a day and the boys ask Billyís Mom to coach Billy so the boys know Billy ate the worm. I think Billy changed a little through the story. In the beginning he really did not want to eat the worms but in the end it didnít bother him so much. It reminded me of my life because if I was in a bet where I had to eat worms, my mom would make me eat the worm. A part that really worried me was when Billy didnít feel good because of the worm. So his mom called the doctor. But the doctor said he was ok.
I recommend this book to third graders and fourth graders. It is for anyone who likes a funny book. This is a book both boys and girls would love. They would like it because it isnít too girly or too much for a boy. It has 127 pages. I loved reading How to Eat Fried Worms.
