Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
Blood squirting from a lizard's eye, poop being flung by a tail, or drinking urine are just a few things that might make a person gag as they read this book. Everything is completely true. The bright and colorful pictures add to the trivia facts and help showcase the grossness of the topic. Each page is filled with pictures and potential new vocabulary words to learn. The glossary at the end gives definitions for any of the larger vocabulary words that might have an unclear meaning. There is also a list of books to read for further information and two really fun, kid-friendly websites to check out. Use the code in the back of the book to get links to more gross books and websites based on the grade of the child. The publishing company also includes their own website that is filled with projects and games. Reviewer: Tima Murrell

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
