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.

★★★★★ How to Eat Fried worms

This was the best book that Mrs. Armstrong has read to our class this year. It was funny. It was good. Other students should read this book too.

★★★★☆ quintessence of juvenile humor

By bdg on Thu, 24 Sep 2009 12:25:04

The kids had a blast talking about this book because all the characters are so plausible that the reader can truly believe the events and outcome of the story. Not to mention, Thomas Rockwell has captured the quintessence of juvenile humor. --Blue Springs North Branch Book Nuts

★★★★☆ Gross

By Country Gal on Tue, 02 Dec 2008 22:33:54

This book as you know has been made into a movie. It is a very gross story and has many morals. It is about a kid who learns to stand up for himself but in the process of trying to keep up his image does something stupid.
