WOW!!! This book was good. See there are some kids that make a bet. Billy has to eat fifteen worms in fifteen days - 1 worm a day. Billy thinks it will be easy to eat fifteen worms but he's in for a surprise. When his mom and dad find out his dad says, "There's nothing wrong with eating worms". But his mom doesn't think that. So she calls the doctor and the doctor says, "He's fine". So his mom lets him go ahead eat more worms. Read the book to find out what happens.

I thought the book was good. I liked it a lot because it was exciting and fun to read. My favorite part was when he had to get up in the middle of the night to eat the fourteenth worm because it was funny and exciting to read. It reminded me of myself because I like to make bets too.

I would recommend the book because I thought it was fun to read and it was exciting to read because they have to eat fifteen worms and you just don't know if he's going to eat all fifteen. I think people who like to laugh and read exciting stories would like to read this book. I think the characters would interest the readers because the author made the characters sound like they're in your backyard.
