If you like a humorous (and maybe a little gross) fiction book, this would be the one for you. How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell is about four kids named Billy, Alan, Tom, and Joe. In this story, Alan and Joe make a fifty dollar bet that Billy can’t eat fifteen worms. He has to eat one worm each day for fifteen days. Alan and Joe try to cheat in some ways, such as gluing two worms together. On the fifteenth worm, Alan and Joe bring Billy to a baseball game. They drop him off at his house a couple minutes before midnight so he won’t have time to eat the last worm. I think you should read this book to find out if Billy does eat the worm before midnight. Thomas Rockwell is a great author. I really liked this book. I hope you do too!
