Book Description

4 Oct 2001
If you look closely you'll agree, There are some silly sights to see. The pages of this book are crammed with sights that are not only silly, but are slimy, smelly and hairy, too. Silly-looking people who have silly walks tuck into some very silly food. Intergalactic slime from Mars arrives on our icky, slimy planet. Every imaginable smell is represented from camels and warthogs to stiff, stinky socks. And there is hair to be found everywhere from huge hairy gorillas to tiny hairy fleas. With her irresistible illustrations and wonderfully funny text, who better to guide us through the silly, slimy, smelly, hairy world we live in than the brilliant Babette Cole?

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you laugh out loud... 1 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My daughter had this book when she was small and we used to read it a lot. She liked it and it made me laugh. We lost it in a house move at some point so for fun, I re-bought it for her recently. Now she is 12, she appreciates it from an adult's point of view and actually enjoys it as much if not more that she did when she was 3 or 4! The illustrations are wonderful and the humour is very dry... our favourite bit is the smelly ferret who needs "De-roderant" - brilliant! If you have 3 year olds or older, with a wicked sense of humour, then this comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves this book 20 Oct 2012
We first read this book when my daughter was 3 years old, we are now reading it together and she is six. Great book with amazing illustrations. This is also a favourite for her teacher, who recently borrowed it from us.
