The Official Spider Test.

What do you do when you see a spider?

and#160;
a. Lay on a BIG spidey smoocheroo.
b. Smile, but back away slowly.
c. Grab the closest object, wind up, and let it fly.
d. Run away screaming.

and#160;

If you chose b, c, or d, then this book is for you! (If you chose a, you might be crazy.)

and#160;

Iand#8217;m Trying to Love Spiders will help you see these amazing arachnids in a whole new light, from their awesomely excessive eight eyes, to the seventy-five pounds of bugs a spider can eat in a single year! And youand#8217;re sure to feel better knowing you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than being fatally bit by a spider. Comforting, right? No? Either way, thereand#8217;s heaps more information in here to help you forget your fears . . . or at least laugh a lot!

Synopsis:

All the Facts on the Ins and Outs of Bodily Functions!

We call them waste products, but poop and pee are essential to our everyday lives. Did you know the chemicals in pee can be used to reduce city smog? Or that poop can fuel a trip to Mars? While we politely avoid the subject, amazing things are happening in digestive tracts all over the world, and you wonand#8217;t believe some of the gross-but-true details! Kids (and adults too!) will be captivated by the astounding facts contained in this fascinating book with hilarious illustrations!

Synopsis:

A classic of modern gross scholarship.
