Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Not for the squeamish, this book advises readers on topics normally avoided in polite conversation, such as "How to Handle Nighttime Boogers" and "How to Survive Lice." In the section covering bodily functions, a tongue-in-cheek chart of terms such as "Spew," "Gack," and "Gargle Gravy" are identified as "Barfonyms," and are followed by factual tips on avoiding motion sickness. While a "Field Guide to Flatulence" distinguishes a "Butt Trumpet" from "The SBD," a useful list of offending food choices is offered as "toot management." Messages on good hygiene are paramount, but are presented in kidspeak, accompanied by cartoon illustrations that show the proper way to lift a toilet seat or where to direct a sneeze. A chapter for young pet owners helps readers to know the correct way to pick up dog poop or manage one's cat's hairballs. Chapters on school and outdoors cover problems such as handling bloody noses, getting pinkeye, or recognizing a tick bite. This title has plenty of boy appeal, though girls are featured in the illustrations and both may enjoy the appendix of recipes for fake blood and more. Adults will forgive the irreverent humor and terminology on the off chance that messages on sanitary practices and good hygiene are being absorbed.—Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY
