Think all animals are cute and cuddly?  Read this book to discover just how disgusting they can really be!There are plenty of books out there that focus on "gross" substances in the human body, but many animals use these same substances in ways that will surprise and fascinate kids! Did you know that Komodo dragons use their saliva to poison their prey, but mice use their saliva to heal their wounds?  Could you guess that vomit is used by the sea cucumber to startle enemies and also by bees to make honey?  Young readers will walk away grossed out and with an understanding of how different animals use spit, vomit, slime, poop, urine, and blood to survive.

  •     I bought this for my grandson, who is very interested in science. I learned some very unusual information, too. Perfect book for young science lovers.

  •     I don't usually buy paperback editions for my library, but I just couldn't say "no" to this book--and neither can my students. They love the bright design, but the fascinating information is the real draw. It must have taken a lot of time and effort to research this book. Written in a friendly, casual voice, Animal Grossapedia is a winning combination of cool animals and gross facts.
