Overview

Kids love to read about gross things like pee. But few realize how fascinating, and even educational, the subject can be. You can learn about all sorts of things from pee--American history (Civil War belles hoarded urine for making gunpowder); the animal kingdom (when lobsters fight they squirt each other with pee from bladders on either side of their eyes); even espionage (scientists are using urine to classify "odortypes" that will identify individuals as accurately as their fingerprints).

In this sequel to the wildly popular The Truth About Poop, Susan E. Goodman and cartoonist Elwood H. Smith bring their humorous touch to a book that's overflowing with compelling, if stomach-churning, information.

About the Author: Susan E. Goodman lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

Elwood H. Smith lives in Rhinebeck, New York.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Those who learned almost everything they wanted to know in The Truth About Poop (PW's starred review said, "This scatological documentary could make a splash") can learn the rest from its creators' companion book, Gee Whiz! It's All About Pee by Susan E. Goodman, illus. by Elwood H. Smith. Using the same format, combining history and science, facts and fun, the book describes some surprising uses for urine during wartime, for instance (and also for tattoos!). This volume may make scientists of even the most reluctant readers. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-The astonishing and often repulsive uses of urine by humans and animals are chronicled in this companion to The Truth about Poop (Viking, 2004). Packed with anecdotes and facts, this book about the importance of pee has subtle humor. With clever wordplay for chapter titles, e.g., "Urine the Army Now," the author grabs readers' attention and educates them with short, quick bits of information. The cartoon illustrations add humor to a subject that students will already be giggling over. Elementary-aged boys in particular will be drawn to the yucky grossness of the topic but will end up learning from the text. A book full of interesting tidbits that students will remember and love to share.-Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Hoping for a follow-up to The Truth about Poop (2004)? Urine luck! Here Goodman and Smith pool their talents once again, producing streams of facts about how pee is produced in the body, how it is used-by humans for cosmetics, medicines and other products, and by animals as a weapon, a means of communication, or a source of nutrition-and the past and future of waste disposal. Readers will wriggle with pleasure as they discover how knights and astronauts took care of business; explore the toilet arrangements of vampire bats, hibernating bears and camels; learn what future restrooms might be like, and much more. Liberally splashed with Smith's cutaways, diagrams, pop-eyed figures and cartoon dingbats, the pages are redolent with both wisecracks and well-digested research. A browser's delight, good to the last drop. Resource list at the nether end. (Nonfiction. 6-9)
