No, this is not a cookbook. How to Eat Fried Worms is children's fiction I borrowed to read last Sunday. Partly because the book title intrigued me, I grabbed the book finished in on the same day.
An argument over Salmon Casserole leads to a bet. A bet to eat fifteen worms in fifteen days. If Billy manages to do this, he can buy a mini motorbike he is longing to have, from the $50 wins through the bet. But the story isn't half-empty of surprises. What would Billy do when worms turn out to be night crawlers? What would Mom and Dad say about it? What if he had a crazy disease after eating the worms? And may be, just may be, someone's out there planning to cheat and win the bet.
Ketchuped worms, peppered worms, fried worms, boiled worms, or a Whizband Worm Delight, what would you have?
