Really cute. I read this to my kids over the period of about a month, a few pages each night. They both thought it was a lot of fun. I remember reading it years ago myself!

This is the "original" story...NOT the recent movie adaptation version. Very simple sketches and easy text makes this a great story. My 9 year old son had fun comparing and contrasting the two versions, book and movie.

This is the book the movie was based on. My ten year old read it and liked it very much. He is in third grade. It has pictures from the movie in it.

I love this book! Can Billy eat 15 worms in 15 days to win a bet? Will his friends try to cheat to get out of the bet-and do they succeed? What does the doctor have to say about worm-eating? Fun to read over and over!

How to Eat Fried Worms has happily repulsed children since its original publication in 1973. Billy must eat 15 worms in 15 days--but the reward will be worth it: $50 for a shiny new minibike. Luckily, Billy's friends cook up these fat juicy grubs in a variety of appetizing ways--drenched in ketchup and mustard, fried in butter and cornmeal, and the pièce de résistance, a Whizbang Worm Delight (an ice-cream worm cake). Readers will derive obvious pleasure from reading (and singing) out loud the hilarious rhymes and childish chants concocted from the mind of the book's author, Thomas Rockwell.

"Trout, Salmon, flounder, perch,
I'll ride my minibike into church.
Dace, tuna, haddock, trout,
Wait'll you hear the minister shout."

My children loved this book in the 80's and my grandchildren love it now! Funny and quirky.
