Overview

Have an itch? Let's zoom in for a closer look at what's causing it. It could be one of many nasty things. How about bacteria poop? (It happens, and it stinks!) It might be a tiny critter that lives on people like a skin mite, louse, chigger, or other creature. It could be a rash . . . or even flesh-eating bacteria. Your skin is your biggest organ, and an important one at that. See all the nasty things that can go wrong - and right - on your skin, and learn about the skin's amazing ability to protect you and heal itself. With close-up pictures and lots of disgusting facts, this book tells all about the gross science behind the skin you're in.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6–These titles work the ick factor to the max with their irreverent style and over-the-top look at body functions. Solid information layered between sarcastic comments and kid-friendly terminology like fart, poop, barf, and puke will keep readers engaged. “Gross fact” and other call-out boxes include historical and scientific details. Labeled, captioned (and graphic) photographs, cartoon-style illustrations, and micrographs add information, though some of the micrographics are incompletely labeled. Read these on an empty stomach.
