How to Eat Fried Worms

by Thomas Rockwell
How to Eat Fried Worms

Include more protein in your diet – add worms! How to Eat Fried Worms has been grossing out children and adults since 1973. This is the story of Billy, a ten-year-old who takes a bet that he will eat 15 worms in 15 days – all for $50. The good part is the variety of ways Billy's friends cook up and dress up the worms. Yum!
