In this zany tale for young readers, Billy learns to eat worms, and earns fifty dollars in the process. Thomas Rockwell’s How to Eat Fried Worms recounts how Billy takes on a bet to eat fifteen worms, in exchange for the money to buy a used mini-bike. Alan and Tom do not believe their friend will go through with the challenge, but Billy is determined. Worried about paying off the bet, Alan and Joe try to discourage him from eating the worms, warning him that the slimy creatures may make him ill, but Billy assuredly will not quit. When he confides in his parents, his father checks with Poison Control, reassuring Billy that worms are perfectly edible. Billy is quite creative in his worm recipes, and after he succeeds in winning the bet, obtaining the money for his bike, he keeps on eating worms, as he actually likes them! Rockwell balances the gross factor of Billy’s unorthodox eating habit with the charming hilarity that characterizes his novel, and will have readers, young and old, giggling and squirming throughout the story. You may end up wondering exactly what a worm and egg sandwich tastes like!
