Format: Hardcover
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.

My 11-year old son refuses to read - with the exception of books by this author. So I was delighted to see another one on the shelves. I've had a brief look through it and it looks very interesting. Much more important, my son is already absolutely hooked!

Excellent book - perfect for a seven year old boy. Just the sort of 'stuff' they like to talk about!

This great value and packed with interesting trivia - I bought it for my 12 year old son and he loves reading it before bed as he says you can open it at any page and find fun facts! A great way to learn!

Although 12 years old, my son enjoyed reading this book. Great fun and educational at the same time.
Great before bedtime as you can select just a few articles. He has requested the whole collection now,

I loved this book. i know that it's aimed for boys but i'm a 12 year old girl and i really enjoyed it. it's full of fun facts like 'the average briton spends more than 400 hours a year shopping.' and funny things that kids said in a test.... i think that mitchell symons is an amazing author and i would really reccomend this book!

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.
