A funny subject, and easy book to get a laugh and entertain the kids with.

The story is told very simply, but directly in fact-telling style. The only glitch was the full frontal nudity of a little boy in a tub of water. The boy was standing up. Otherwise, loads of information and a lot of nervous laughs.

My friend and I would visit the Natural Wonders store in the mall in sixth grade, and each time we would read this and "Everybody Poops." We thought it was the funniest thing ever. We are 25 now, and I gave this book to her at her baby shower. Now we can pass on the laughs to a new generation!

This book talks about the taboo topic of passing gas. We actually bought it as a gift for my mother who always gets mad at us for burping inside the house, so it was supposed to be a joke. But it was actually quite informative! This is a good book for parents trying to teach their children about sometimes awkward topics.

I bought this book to read to my 5th grade health class when we were doing our nutrition unit. 10 - 11 year old boys are very interested in farting, so they loved this book.

Its been a challenge to get my 8 year old to read. He read this story through twice just at the store. He laughed so hard and it did not matter to him that it was a little bit challenging because it was so funny to him. I am going to bye this for him for Christmas and see if I can find other funny books like this one. Oh by the way it is not just funny but educational on how the body functions!

I found this book very intriguing. I recommended this book to higher 8th grade class, and had them write a summary and a book cover for this magnificent book. They enjoyed reading this and took this very seriously. I suggest all teachers to pass the book down to their students.

I bought this book today and read it to my son and we laughed, but I also realized that this book goes into detail of how the digestive system works and other things. It's a good book - not disgusting or nasty, but informational and natural.

I just finished reading it and I'm still laughing. A very informative and silly book.

This is a most informative, funny book on a most embarrassing topic. I loved it! I found it at my dentist's office--an embarrassing moment for him. Actually, I could not figure out why he was embarrassed. Everyone does it or at least knows someone who does. I plan to buy the book for my grandsons (to inform them), my son-in-law and my husband (to tease them).

This book is playful and informative. It does oversimplify the digestive process, but one can expect that from a children's book. Three cheers for Shinto Cho!

IT was a very funy book. My mom and I were hysertically lughing! It's a good book to take away the embarrasment of passing gass nn public

This book provided an excellent resource in my quest to discover my true nature, and the nature of man to the universe. I found it fairly complex and overly analytical at times, but with the use of my aunt hilde's green highlighter and a local discussion group, keen insight dripped into my cerebrum like soft serve into a picnic table. Hoo hee.. how i love crudely drawn charactatures of elephant buttocks (touches myself)

This book is really funny and gives children reasons for this natural occurance in our everyday lives. I would recommend it for children and adults. I think your children will really enjoy reading about this 'oh so funny' subject.
