Reviews

Gr 4-7-The story of Billy who, because of a bet, is in the uncomfortable position of having to eat 15 worms in 15 days.

" The clear writing, clever illustrations, and revolting subject matter are sure to make a hit with many middle-grade readers." -- "School Library Journal," Starred
" A hilarious story that will revolt and delight. . . . The chapters march briefly and irresistibly on, worm by worm. The characters and their families and activities are natural to a T, and this, juxtaposed against the uncommon plot, makes for some colorful, original writing in a much-needed comic vein." -- "Booklist"
" Rockwell's sensibilities (if that's the word) are so uncannily close to those of the average ten-year-old boy that one begins to admire Billy as a really sharp operator." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
