Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fascinating…Unbelievable…Gross! These are just a few of the responses readers will hear when they impress their friends with facts from the quirky new book of body trivia, Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers and Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body by Francesca Gould.

This collection of little-known facts about the human body answers the questions you have always wanted to ask but never dared to, such as:

  • Can smoking make your teeth fall out?

  • Is it safe to eat moldy food after the mold’s been cut off?

  • Do intelligent people have bigger brains?

  • How do astronauts poo in space?

The book also offers many unbelievable-but-true historical factoids about the body. For example:

  • Have you ever heard of Dr. Strangelove Syndrome? It’s a rare condition caused by damage to certain parts in the brain, which results in a person’s hand acting independently and taking on a life of its own.

  • Did you know that there is also a rare condition called Foreign Accent Syndrome, which results in people suddenly developing a foreign accent?

  • Have you ever wondered if a heart transplant could change your personality? The short answer is, yes!

  • Did you know that men used hair gel 2000 years ago during the Iron Age?

Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers offers of cornucopia of body trivia that will have readers cringing with delight! You can read it on the subway, in the bathroom, or even in a heavy downpour! For contrary to popular belief, according to this book, you cannot catch cold by standing in the rain!

Synopsis:

This delightful book is full of random and, at times, scatological facts about the human anatomy. Broken down by the systems of the body, it answers questions many would be too embarrassed to ask.

Synopsis:

Road Trip: Come Along for the Ride!

The first title in No Way . . . Way!, the fun and funky fact-book series using photographs from across Smithsonian collections. Road Trip looks at people on the move: across the land, up in the air, or deep in the sea. The fascinating facts and figures span history, geography, science, engineering, transportation, invention, and architecture--not to mention crazy inventions, weird attractions, and other wacky stuff!

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.
