    “You’re a bastard”That’s what one school aged child says to another somewhere in this book I read it in the third grade and I remember very clearly talking to Kevin Petrasek about it Kevin telling me it was a swear word and me not believing him I had never heard this word before in my life So of course I asked Miss Lisak and she decided we should discuss it further in detentionSo anyway my kid picked up this book at the library today On my recommendation I understand they changed later versions of this sentence to “You’re a fink” which is totally fucking ridiculous I just hope he enjoys it every bit as much as I did

    Although Thomas Rockwell's How to Eat Fried Worms was very much a personal favourite when it was read to me to our whole class in grade five as an adult rereading this novel I unfortunately feel that How to Eat Fried Worms has lost much if not most of its charm in other words that it has not aged all that well The antics of Billy Forrester and his friends and of course his adversaries his nemeses now leave me at best only very mildly amused and often than not rather majorly annoyed Eating fifteen large earthworms nightcrawlers for a silly wager while this might have appealed to me as an eleven year old as an adult it makes me rather shudder and I actually also feel sorry and some compassion for the poor worms especially the last nightcrawler that is literally consumed alive not to mention that Billy's and Alan's bet is for something like fifty dollars a pretty large amount of money that could encourage imitation even gambling However and that all being said I guess I can to a point both still see and appreciate the lasting appeal of How to Eat Fried Worms especially for girls and especially boys between the ages of ten to about twelve; after all my eleven year old self loved it And perhaps one could consider the fact that Billy not only manages to eat all of the reuired fifteen earthworms but actually becomes hooked on them that he begins to enjoy eating them as a food source as somewhat of a mildly didactic authorial message to not simply disdain different strange or exotic seeming foods until one has tasted them until one has at least tried them but this potential is not really enough for me any as the erstwhile magic and delight of How to Eat Fried Worms that I experienced in grade five has by now lastingly dissipated

    When we finished this in school I was in a split first and second grade class So I was 6 and I remember vividly; The teachers brought us out an Oreo dirt cake with gummy worms My imagination was so vivid that I thought that stuff was real I had not seen gummy worms or Oreo cake yet So I was staying far back; not for fear of worms nah I always rescued them from hot sidewalks or played with them No shame I just didn’t fancy eating one They gave it to us in a cup and I thought oh gross what are these people thinking ? I want to call my mother and get out of here When some finally got close enough to me for me to see the difference I was amazed I should also have had glasses when I was young I suinted lots Hehe The thing is they were acting like it was real and I was totally believing them The worms the dirt like one teacher was jiggling the worm around then ate it Anyway this book is cemented in my memory because of that and because later I saw the movie Icky Good book though

    Category A Book from your Childhood 3 Stars I didn’t remember much about this book when I started this re read I remember that my mother was horrified by the prospect of my reading a book titled How to Eat Fried Worms than Billy’s mother seemed to be by the fact her son was eating worms I remembered thinking that mustard my second least favourite of all the condiment kingdom was probably grosser to stomach than fried worms themselves And that is about it However I saw this book in the second hand store one day and picked it up again which was handy since I started this lovely PopSugar Challenge shortly thereafter How to Eat Fried Worms is a children’s novel centred around three boyhood friends and a bet 'The Bet' as you may have guessed is for one of said boys Billy to eat worms Fifteen worms in fifteen days to be exact Grown up Karly is A LOT horrified than child Karly was by this concept but she is also somewhat curious not enough to try them mind what exactly a fried worm would taste like? I have eaten some pretty gross things as an adult – I’m looking at YOU ceviche octopus – and I just don’t imagine it would be as gross as it seems Anyways this book isn’t really ABOUT the act of eating fried worms so much as it is about friendship and the fissures that gambling and trickery can cause in relationships It’s about keeping your word and also to a point the lengths that people children will go to to acuire things such as motorbikes It’s about arguments and the aftermath of such And it’s a good little piece on that I don’t really have much else to say about it except this my 'new' copy has been censored ladies and gents The copy I recently purchased says 'fink' and I DISTINCTLY recall getting soap to the mouth when asking – because of this book – what 'bastard' meant as a child Censorship is NOT my bag

    I read this book with my Reading Class We spent a month listening to the book on tape and filling out a packet that went with it Afterwords we watched the movie and did a compare and contrast assignmentThe students rated this book1 star 2 students3 stars 3 students4 stars 2 student I personally felt this book was worthy of 3 stars I found it entertaining and very creative I completely understand why it is considered a modern classic because it is one of the first of its kindI found the characters to be a little confusing and had a hard time keeping everyone apart Also I thought at times the book dragged on However I enjoyed the creativeness of the story and how the book was written at a lower level but was made for older students

    Meh Got to page 38 and just couldn’t any Did read bits to someone who was once a boy the age of those in this book are they said that “grown up” boys are much the same So it gets two stars for realism but it’s not uite for me I think I’m in a book slump so it’s not the book on this one I am not uite the demographic for this story Some kids books work well for adults but I don’t think this is one of them

    Thomas Rockwell’s How to Eat Fried Worms is about a group of young boys who have made a bet The book is about Bill and his two friends Alan and Joe Billy is a normal kid with no money who wants a new motorbike and to earn the money for it his two friends bet 50 that he can’t eat 15 worms in 15 days So on the day one of the bet Alan and Joe bring Billy a worm which has been boiled in mustard horseradish and ketchup Billy struggles to eat the first worm but manages to get it all down and survives day one Over the next few days the worms that Alan and Joe bring are just as horrible But with the help of Billy’s mom and his other friend Tom Billy comes up with special words that will help him eat the worms They also come up with their own ways to cook the worms to help Billy eat them easily As Alan and Joe begin to see that Billy can actually win this bet they try to cheat in order to keep Billy from winning their money Despite the tension between friends and all the cheating Billy powers through and wins the bet How to Eat Fried Worms is an excellent children’s book It’s a fun book that will make kids laugh and cringe at the same time while reading about the disgusting worms that Billy has to eat It also shows the friction between friends and some of the peer pressure you go through as a child which the kids can relate to The book also uses very descriptive and awesome visual words The illustrations in the book are good too
