The Word Eater by Mary Amato, Christopher Ryniak

Life is miserable for sixth grader Lerner Chanse at her new shool, where the MPOOE (Most Powerful Ones On Earth) Club ruthlessly rules over the SLUGs (Sorry Losers Under Ground). It looks as if Lerner is destined to be a SLUG, until she finds a magical worm that eats printed words instead of dirt. If Fip eats a word, that item simply disappears from the world — forever.

The Word Eater is about a girl who finds a worm called Fip and what is speacial about Fip is that he only likes to eat words on paper.

This book was great. I thought it was so interesting of what a worm could do 2 the planet. Personally this book is better than the mystical Harry Potter because I dont care about a stupid wizard. Dont listen 2 those reviews because this book is great!

Simply put, this is not that good a book. With so many wonderful books like Harry Potter, King Fortis the Brave and Holes out there that cater to the same age group, this one pales in comparison.

The Word eater by some author, is a very different book. To me, i didn't really like it. You don't see to many reviews on it do u? Well, i am not a fan of fantasy, but if u r, then u would love it greatly. but as for me, you read it, i'll go pick up a historical fiction book. ok, c u l8er
