How to Eat Fried Worms Overview

Billy (Luke Benward), an 11-year-old fifth grader, inadvertently challenges the town bully on his first day at a new school. To save face and earn the respect of his new classmates, Billy agrees to a bet that will determine his fate at the school—whether or not he can eat 10 worms in one day.

As the pressure mounts, he must summon heroic strength to keep his younger brother from blabbing, his weak stomach from betraying him, and his big mouth from getting him into more trouble than he's already in.

Based on the children’s novel by Thomas Rockwell.
