BEETLES, LIGHTLY TOASTED
New York : Atheneum, 1987
IL 3-6, RL 5.2
graders eat beetles??!!! When Andy learns how to prepare these and other
creatures, he tries his new recipes on unsuspecting friends and family.
It's all part of his effort to win the annual fifth grade essay contest.
The Grand Prize: $50, but most important, your name and picture appear
in the local paper. Does Andy's essay "How Beetles, Bugs, and Worms Can
Save Money and the Food Supply, Both"; have what it takes to win the contest?
Better yet, will he finally be able to beat his cousin and arch rival,
Jack? To find the answers to these questions read Beetles,
by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. Who knows? You might even discover a few tasty
recipes! (Jana Davis, email@example.com)
