Poo! What Is That Smell?: Everything You Ever Needed to Know about the Five Senses

Poo! What Is That Smell?: Everything You Ever Needed to Know about the Five Senses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fascinating (and very funny) look at the five senses from the author of Why Is Snot Green? 

Both gross and informative, this book tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about the five senses. Find out which animal has the biggest eyes, what's inside your ear canals, why sweaty socks smell so stinky, why sprouts and ice cream taste so different, why we can touch and feel things, and lots more!

Review:

"Murphy continues his series of science-minded chapter books (including Why Is Snot Green? and How Loud Can You Burp?) that use a touch of gross-out humor and here-and-there illustrations to hook readers. Each of the five senses gets its own chapter, with bolded vocabulary words sprinkled throughout. Details on how animals use their senses to survive in the wild also feature prominently: 'Flies, bees and other insects have compound eyes made up of hundreds (or even thousands) of mini eye-tubes called ommatidia.' The format, which invites easy browsing between sections, should hit a sweet spot for readers with an enthusiasm for strange-but-true facts. Ages 7 — 9. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
