On his first day at a new school, eleven-year-old Billy goes up against the school bully in a challenge that ends up with a total gross-out date...to eat 10 worms in one day. As the pressure mounts, Billy must summon all his strength to meet the dare, all the while keeping his weak stomach from betraying him and his big mouth from getting him in even more trouble.

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 !

This movie had the potential to be horrendous, but it's really not that bad. Sure it relies too heavily on gross humor and clichés, not to mention the plot is a little thin and that some of the story is absurb, while some is preachy. Hallie Kate Eisenberg was adorbs. The characters of Adam and Woody were humorous at times; equally, characters such as Joe and Twitch were sometimes difficult to watch.

Overall, I think this movie was hugely successful in targeting its audience and not diving too far into absurdity and irrelevance. How to Eat Fried Worms is not a great movie by any means, but it is a worthwhile family night entry.

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 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.
