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.

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. :(
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Phone booth near the ticket office and the Elvis statue (and the ATM).
I'm so glad you've found this book!
If you're new to Bookcrossing, I hope you will take some time to explore this wonderful free and anonymous community and learn what it has to offer.
Freed any good books lately? It's good for the circulation. :)
