Presents facts for young readers about the fluids, discharges, and excretions of the human body and other organisms.

Publishers Description
<i>Gross Universe</i> is an eye-opening, sometimes stomach-turning 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. With topics including sweat, mold, pus (a Perfectly Understandable Secretion), our gross microscopic friends, and even fossilized dinosaur poop, the book holds myriad delights waiting to be discovered. Irreverent illustrations enliven the amazing parade of weird scientific facts. Special features include Games You Should Never Play (such as Komodo Kissing Booth), gross activities (example: create a Dandruff Landing Pad), and Scientist A and Scientist B, recurring characters whose bickering back and forth helps elucidate the facts. <i>Gross Universe</i> reveals a universe that may not always be pretty, but is sure to keep children engrossed, laughing, and learning.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Book!  Mar 29, 2004
This is a really fun, informative and well designed book. But don't think that it's just for kids - my 31 year-old brother loved it. Gross Universe truly lives up to it's name (esp. the lizard that shoots blood out of it's eyes as a defence mechanism!?)without going too far. It's sitting on the line of revolting and cool, showing us how wonderfully disgusting our world can be.

The pictures are fantastic and the writing witty and easy to understand. I actually learned a few things and had a good laugh while reading Gross Universe. This makes a good addition to both the classroom and the coffee table.
