Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The latest Japanese import in Kane/ Miller's My Body Science/Curious Nell series starts out promisingly, with some of the same frank humor that characterized their initial offering (Taro Gomi's Everyone Poops ). Yagyu is certainly informative--he bolsters his explanations of the nose and its functions with diagrams and crisp line drawings, and his largely orange, red and black palette lends a retro-'60s look. Unfortunately, the book goes more than slightly overboard in its exploration of nasal passages. For example, a gorilla with a runny nose denies the offer of a tissue, saying that he plans to ``let it dry then pick it off and eat it.'' Even the hardiest readers may find themselves opting out of this one. Pass the Kleenex, please. Ages 18 mos.-5 yrs. (Apr.)

PreS-Gr 1-There are some imports that just shouldn't make the crossing, and this study of nostrils is one of them. Just like the first in this series, Taro Gomi's Everyone Poops (Kane/Miller, 1993), the pictures are dull, the text is stilted, and the value is nill. Does anyone really care if, when they get older, their nostrils will be bigger? Or, that, according to one young boy with a dripping nose, ``Wed the holes in my dose are sdubbed ub, I candt sbell id eved wed I fart.''? (This is accompanied by ``BRRRROMMMM!'' printed next to the subject's rear end.) In fact, runny noses are pictured on several pages; the monotony is broken by depictions of bleeding noses, one caused by ``pick(ing) it too roughly.'' Other bits of wisdom are also included, such as ``If you fill up the holes in your nose with morning glory seeds, the seeds will swell up and begin to sprout. Your nose will hurt a lot.'' Not worth anyone's time or money.-Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
