Format: Hardcover
Saw this for sale the other day and noticed it was by the same author who did 'How To Avoid A Wombats Bum' which my 13 year old step-son really enjoyed reading.
He loves this one too as it's great reading for kids/teens etc, full of interesting and weird facts. Great stocking filler which the adults will also enjoy if it's left lying about on the coffee table!

Format: Hardcover
As a loving and above all responsible parent I felt that this was the perfect reference manual to further my two daughters' education. Having recently caught my 8 year old watching television with most of her hand up one nostril only to be withdrawn and feed the extractions into her mouth below, I felt that the title of this book was relevant, and it seemed to place an emphasis on her health too, which can only be a good thing.

The fact of the matter is, there is a lot of genuinely useful information in here. It's all in question-and-answer format, there being 310 in all, and while a lot of them are rather pointless (at least to an adult) there are many that are handy to know and a whole lot that I couldn't answer myself. For example, I read many years ago that you could fit the entire human population of the world on the Isle of Wight - is this true? The answer lies within. Why is yawning so infectious? Why is a piggy-bank so called? What is the origin of the best known word on the planet, "OK"? Why do we say that someone has been "given the sack", when they have been fired? Who was Gordon Bennett?

Most important of all of course is the (apparent) fact that bogies are indeed good for you, or at least that's the claim of an Austrian physician named Dr Friedrich Bischinger - although he stresses that any digit employed in this way needs to be thoroughly clean, and that you should only pick your own nose. Conversely, you must never consume ear-wax, not even your own; doubtless this will come as a disappointment to countless Amazon members but the said Dr Bischinger strongly advises against this pleasant pastime. My pet cat won't mind hearing this news however, as for him it's a prized delicacy and he wouldn't want to share my ear-wax with anybody.

Format: Hardcover
Well my non-reading computer mad two boys all love this book and regularly enjoy swapping titbits they've picked up from it. Have given copies to a couple of their similarly computer-obsessed friends and I gather they have been equally well-received! Am now hoping for further titles in this series as they really seem to get my boys enthusing... Not sure about the title though! I'm old fashioned enough to think that eating bogeys is rather unpleasant. I'm sure girls will find the books juts as interesting - I juts don't happen to have any...

We bought this as a stocking filler for our 9 year old )who does love to eat his bogeys)!

He thought the book was fabulous and spent many hours in bed reading this in the evening before sleeping.

Very funny and certainly grasped our reluctant reader :)

I bought this book as a little bonus birthday gift for my six year old Grandson. When Amazon asked me to review it, I asked him what he thought of it. "It's alright" he replied. I was dissappointed and wondered why, then remembered the occasion when he'd opened it. His dad, granddad and great granddad had taken it in turns to call out enthusiastically 'listen to his!' laughing and shouting in turn, or humphing and bragging and telling each other 'I knew that.' Poor lad, he didn't get a look in, he probably thinks it's for adults only. I must remember to encourage him to take a look himself, and maybe share a little with me.

Bought this for a ten year old who immediately laughed at the title. I spent a long time reading this and learned a lot of interesting things. Would recommend to a varying age group.

My kids both loved reading this series and my only regret is that whenever I ask my youngest to stop picking his nose he blinds me with science in his defence...
