So, John-Paul is bored when his father, the owner of a factory, has a dinner for all the senior executives. Now, I don’t really care for all these stuffed shirts, so I’ll probably enjoy whatever mischief John-Paul gets in.
And he decides to put a worm in everyone’s salads (he keeps them in the fridge for fishing).
I’m kind of disturbed by all the worms’ facial expressions as they get eaten.
I’m not sure what to think. It’s not really funny, per se. (Though John-Paul thinks it is.) I think kids will simultaneously be amused and horrified as everyone eats their worms.
This is probably one of those books that people will or won’t enjoy, depending on their palate.
So to speak.
Thanks to NetGalley and Kids Can Press for a copy in return for an honest review.
