Why Dogs Eat Poop, and Other Useless or Gross Information about the Animal Kingdom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A third installment in the delightfully disgusting miscellany series that began with the national bestseller, Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body.

In the New York Times (extended list) bestseller Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body, Francesca Gould uncovered everything you'd want to know-and a few things you'd rather you didn't-about the human body. In Why Fish Fart and Other Useless or Gross Information About the World, she scoured planet Earth for a rich assortment of odd and/or unsavory facts. In Why Dogs Eat Poop and Other Useless or Gross Information About the Animal Kingdom, Francesca Gould and David Haviland explore a subject positively rife with gross miscellany: the animal kingdom.

Indeed, animals do the darnedest things and, in this vastly entertaining book, Gould and Haviland uncover a universe of strange, hilarious, and quite often disgusting animal habits, ailments, and practices, including:

-Monkey-Faced Lamb disease;

-farting snakes;

-dino-chickens;

-and a creature you've never heard of that eats with its eyes.

Why Dogs Eat Poop is sure to delight any fan of the obscure and/ or grotesque.

Synopsis:

The authors of the "New York Times" bestseller "Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body" return and explore a subject positively rife with gross miscellany: the animal kingdom.

Synopsis:

Get ready to squirm!

Did you know there are spiders that look just like bird poop? Cockroaches that can be directed by remote control? And snakes that fart to scare away predators? These are just a few of the bizarrly engrossing, disgusting, and squirm-inducing facts about animals you can use to entertain and gross-out friends and parents.

Synopsis:

You won't be able to resist picking this one!

Itching to know what bugs live in your eyelashes, why you get goose bumps, or how ants can be used to heal a wound? Use this delightfully disgusting collection of kid-tastic facts to gross out your friends and relatives. In this abridged edition of the adult bestseller, readers will laugh, cringe and squirm over tons of bizarre facts about the human body.
