I am a girl and I love this book so much I can't stop reading it. It is super gross, exactly why Ilove it. I just checked out books from the library and this was the first book I read. I wouldn't let super bad kids read cauae you don't know wgat they are goimg to do witg all this super gross stuff. But this is sooooooooo gross and awesome. Especially for boys and nongirly girls.

This book is not only fun, but it's packed with stealthy science and history. So it scores high on the "socially redeeming" meter. And if the person you're getting it for is easily grossed out, they STILL might enjoy this book. That's because THE BIG BOOK OF GROSS STUFF is written so irresistibly, readers are likely to go through it from cover to cover, all the while quoting from it out loud!

I had to wonder about this book when I saw my son carrying it EVERYWHERE with him. He just sits and actually laughs while reading it. It's From an adult perspective, the book is fun, and also packed with science, history, and psychology. Is it gross? YES! And the author addresses his topic with zest. But while there may be a faint-hearted adult or two who will be shocked (shocked!) at this, rest assured that there is nothing in this book that wouldn't be found in a good junior high science class.

Sample is amazing!!!!!!!! Furthermore, hillarious and a fun-to-read book. For thse who say it doesn't gross them out, you actually may just be very lucky as for the rest of us it does the trick.

This book indicates it is for a 10 year old and will more likely be appealing to boys. But most 10 year old boys do not have the maturity level to handle the topics. The reading level is for 7-12 year olds. I am not a mother but if I was I would not buy this for my 10 year old boy or girl for that matter. Perhaps I am too sheltering. You decide. Topic- The Miracle of Birth pg. 34 & 35 "So on everyone's first birthday, there's mucus, blood, poop (mother and baby) pee, body tissues and a baby all showing up at once!" (Describing placenta and a water birth) "(The placenta) is a nutrient-rich sack of flesh, dripping red and gooey, that has to make its appearance." "But since a lot of things like placenta come out with the baby, the people assisting with the delivery often use tropical fish nets to scoop all the chucks out of the tub's water!" It also goes on to explain how some families eat the placenta. Topic- Shrinking Heads pg 127 " Step 1. Chop off the head of your enemy. (You already did that right?) 2. Make a vertical cut down the back of the head and neck and carefully peel the flesh off the skull. (the decapitated person is now 'losing face.') 3. Sew the eyes and mouth shut. 4. Put some small stones around the base of a fire. Hang a pot of water over it. Now boil the head skin for two hours. During this time, you'll notice that it's sort of like a wool sweater in the dryer: it shrinks! ... 7. Put head on keychain and sell to American tourist." Topic- Food, Drink, and other Harmless Hazards pg. 225 "A can of mushrooms is legally (by the FDA) allowed to contain twenty maggots for every hundred grams of mushrooms." "Other harmless hazards allowed by the FDA: insects and their eggs, insect filth (excrement), insect larvae (maggots), mammal poop (usually rat poop), mold, mildew, parasites, rodent filth and hair." Now if I was ten when I read this, I would stop eating. "A cowboy delicacy is known as Rocky Mountain Oysters, cowboy caviar, swinging sirloin, and lamb or calf fries... Yes, I'm referring to testicles." Most of the book contains harmless topics (poop, pee, animals behavior, boogers, eye worms, a dog who bit off her owners nose)... But I would not want my child to read the paragraphs I suplimented above unless I wanted them to become a body chopper who is interested in placenta and doesn't eat anything I cook for them.
