"People are always daring Billy to do zany things. But Billy may have bitten off more than he can chew when he takes his friend Allan's bet that Billy can't eat fifteen worms in fifteen days. If Billy wins, Alan has to fork over fifity dollars. Billy wants the money to buy a used minibike, so he's ready to dig in. He sets up mustard and ketchup, salt and pepper, and sugar and lemon to disguise the disgusting taste. Good news for Billy--once he gets going, he finds himself actually getting hooked on those juicy worms. Bad news for Billy--Alan is busy cooking up schemes to make Billy worm out of the bet. Will Billy keep up his wormy work for fifteen days? No cheating! Keep eating! Worm by worm by worm...'--P. [4] of cover.

Very humorous and entertaining read. Typical of some boys and their shenanigans ! Really enjoyed this story and would recommend it for a quick and funny read. Doesn't disappoint !

For ages 9-12. Can worms make a delicious meal? “I bet they can!” says Billy, who is soon in the uncomfortable position of having to eat fifteen worms in fifteen days.

A very funny book. I can't read it without laughing.

A subversive classic, this has been adapted in other media but nothing beats the pleasure of reading it. Rockwell's singular style perfectly captures the zany verve of his characters who, being kids, are delightfully free of any thought of propriety.
