Ear-Splitting Sounds and Other Vile Noises by Anna Claybourne

They say that in space no one can hear you scream…and it's true! In the emptiness of space, nothing makes a noise. But on Earth our ears are constantly pounded by sounds. Learn all about the most disgusting and dreadful aspects of sound. From windy whoopee cushions to glass-smashing opera singers and music-loving pigs, this book is full of yucky, painful, and fascinating facts.

You can get your ears tuned into some easy (and painless!) experiments, too.
