The Worms Ate My Homework
The idea for this book came about in a lecture about vermicomposting. The speaker was discussing the types of materials used to make bedding for the worms and mentioned that you could use shredded paper. She jokingly said you could feed them your phone bill. Instead of a student claiming the dog ate their homework, now they can claim the worms ate my homework. The joke in a meeting turned into a book idea.
