Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-7 The kids from How to Eat Fried Worms (Watts, 1973) are back in a story of mean tricks, fighting, and getting even. Billy's trail bike, obtained through winning a bet that he could eat 15 worms, has made four neighborhood kids jealous, and they're out to get him. When he lets Amy ride his bike, the other three turn against her also. What follows is an unfocused story of children trying to get revenge, cast with unpleasant charactersBilly's bickering parents, his mother who is unable to follow through with a punishment, and the conniving and vindictive kids. The humorous black-and-white illustrations belie the serious undertones of the story, in which the children only pretend to their parents that they are contrite about their behavior and the vandalism that they caused. There is no discussion of the way they treated each other or about sharing, and their bewildered parents never do understand what was going on. They laugh at the children's written confession, and the story ends. Most adults who read this will wonder, ``Who's in charge of these kids?'' Young readers are more likely to wonder if any of the adults have even an ounce of common sense. Everyone will most likely wonder what what the point of it all is. Trev Jones, ``School Library Journal''

    Unclear Story

    I am 9 years old and I love to read. I will read just about anything. I picked this book from my schoool class library. Although, it was easy to read, I could not understand the story. I did not like the characters and was grossed out by the 'lovey-dovey' ness of the story.
