Literacy Circles-How to eat fried worms-by Thomas Rockwell

Passage 1-Blurb (back of book)

“I bet you fifty dollars you can’t eat fifteen worms,” 

With a simple “okay” the bet is on.

Fried worms, boiled worms, worm sandwiches, worms with peanut butter…however he eats them, Billy must eat 15 worms in 15 days. Will he win? Or will Alan and Joe find a way to stop him walking away with their fifty dollars?

I chose this passage, because it surprised me, because in the movie, Alan is on his side, and Joe is the one who thinks he can’t eat 15 worms.

Passage 2-Page 6Paragraph 2

I will get someone to read it out.

I also found this surprising, because in the movie, Billy has a very weak stomach.
