Your Guide to All Disgusting Things Under the SunBook - 2004
Gross Universe is an eye-opening, sometimes stomach-turning, but always irresistibly entertaining exploration of the many physical things about animals, plants, and-of course-young readers themselves that often go politely unmentioned. From mucus to vomit, from farts to phlegm, nothing is off limits. Colorful photos and illustrations, coupled with author Jeff Szpirglas's wicked sense of humor, enliven the amazing parade of weird scientific facts. Presenting our gross microscopic friends, sweat and other malodorous excretions, mold, pus (a Perfectly Understandable Secretion), even fossilized dinosaur poop, the book is full of myriad delights waiting to be discovered. Gross Universe reveals a universe that may not always be pretty, but it's sure to keep children engrossed, laughing, and learning.
