HASH(0x98024e64) out of 5 stars I got this as a birthday present... 27 Nov. 2003
By Jonathan Burgoine - Published on
Format: Board book
This is the sickest, most disturbing, most obscene book upon which I have ever stumbled, and is the most offensive birthday gift I have ever received.

It's perfect. I love it!

All kidding aside, this is a book very much about what it says it is about. The smells inside include fesces, vomit, halitosis, the gas we pass ("Your farts aren't your own! Your large intestine is full of millions of microscopic bacteria that live inside you... their tiny farts add up until... you produce a bottom burp yourself!"), and the book is full of fabulously scientific hilarity - all of it gross, of course.

Not for the faint of heart (or smell), but it's one heck of a conversation starter if you leave it out in the open. My friend knew what he was doing when he bought this gem for my birthday.

HASH(0x97a53b94) out of 5 stars ALL IN THE WORST POSSIBLE TASTE 7 Nov. 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Board book
Dorling Kindersley go (or rather step into) where most publishers would fear to tread in this joyous celebration of all things gross and disgusting. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face whether you're young or just young at heart.
Don't be afraid to turn your nose up at this scratch n' sniff experience ... it's exactly the reaction Andrew Donkin, the book's author, is looking for. Inventive as a book for children, but more than likely to find itself comfortably on the coffee tables of adults with a healthy sense of humour... this is a must have.

HASH(0x97c1ba8c) out of 5 stars Very Funny 1 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Board book
My son chose this book because it looked disgusting and it is! It's also very funny and the illustrations are just wild! It's a book any kid aged 8 to 38 would enjoy and certainly one to disgust Grandma with. It's also got some bits of horrible science in it - so you actually learn a little something as well.

HASH(0x97c8c648) out of 5 stars GROSS SMELLS-SAME SMELL 19 Jan. 2006
By Donna Giavon - Published on
Format: Board book
As discusting as it sounds to write how dissapointed I was that the vomit did not smell any different from the dog poop, I have to say they all smelled the same, albeit it was still sulphuricly acidic rank.I was mildly amused, but dissapointed.
