it was ok
bookshelves: children, fiction
Read in October, 2006

I always thought this was a Beverly Cleary book. Don’t ask me why. This is all my coworker's fault. To make a long story short we were discussing SPAM (the food, not the junk e-mail) and somehow we digressed to this book. She was scandalized that I’d never read it and I had to keep the peace somehow, so here I am. The parents in this book were awfully permissive, especially when Billy’s mom actually cooked the worms for him! I realize this is a kids’ book, and therefore doesn’t necessarily have to be strictly realistic, but come on! I’m just glad I didn’t read this as a kid; I probably would have ended up just like Billy.
