I decided I had to read this before I send it to the winner in the Banned Book Challenge RABCK drawing - Hypen8.

An interesting story that is pretty believable about a boy who makes a bet and the extent he and the person he bets goes to win the bet.

Hard to believe this book was banned or challenged.

Arrived today - thanks very much! (Note: I'm pretty sure the cover image was automatically updated at some point; I don't remember this Campbell's soup look-alike version!)

1976 Nēnē Award winner; here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf.

This book has been banned for encouraging "socially unacceptable behavior", because of ONE use of the word bastard, and because the father drinks beer.. (Edited to provide a different link since the first one I put here was in an earlier journal entry.)

I remember when a classmate supposedly swallowed a number of tadpoles. On purpose. I wasn't the slightest bit tempted. Somehow I don't think reading this book would *really* make me want to eat worms! :p

Imagine banning all children's books that depict a character drinking alcohol. Like this one. :(

A cute story. I was definitely rooting for Billy, but I'm still not tempted to eat a worm, thanks.
