This book, and the others by Symons, are sheer joy for kids, tapping into their insatiable appetite for facts, particularly if they're gross, gruesome and ghastly. Farts, bogeys and the like are just what they're interested in.
Truth be told, I rather enjoy this stuff myself. Nothing like grossing out your colleagues while you're eating with one of the more squirm-inducing. Okay, maybe I'm heading for my second childhood. But my kids find it all hilarious and can't get enough of it.

Another book written in the same style as the others, such as "How much Poo does an elephant do?" "Why eating bogeys is good for you?" Great for kids, and this adult alike, very funny in places; but very difficult to find a particular section to read to my hubbie afterwards. A index/contents page (as "..Wombat's bum") would have been handy.
