How to Eat Fried Worms - by Thomas Rockwell

Would you eat 15 worms for 50 bucks? Billy decided he would, and that's the main plot of this timeless classic by Thomas Rockwell. This book is even older than Mister K, if you can believe it! If a book that old is still as popular as this one, you know it's good. This book serves up a diet of worms in every form you can imagine, and some you'd rather not. If you like funny books about boys getting themselves into trouble, this is the book for you. It's a good fourth-grade read, but could interest both older and younger readers.
(P.S. There are at least three different covers, the one shown being one of the most recent.)

Did you know that Thomas is the son of Norman? Not that children know who Norman Rockwell is anymore, but I found it fascinating!
