Very enjoyable and informative from beginning to end: the life cycle details of tape worms was particularly appealing. Sparked lots of conversations with my 9-year old daughter. Would say that the upper age limit given on Amazon for this book (9) is low - the subject has wider appeal and older children would also learn from this.
The science is spot on, the illustrations are witty and the wry humour will appeals to kids and adults alike. Probably I could have done without knowing about the 430 parasites that I could potentially be playing host to at this very moment, but compared to some of the other stomach churning critters that call other animals 'home', I probably got off pretty lightly. The utter bizarreness of the subject matter and the repulsive compellingness of the facts presented mean that you'll probably retain more of the knowledge imparted by this book than virtually any other book you'll read this year - which is the whole point of Popular Science literature.
This is perfect for kids with a well developed taste for the disgusting - and the ideal gift for boys (and tomboys) who relish being revolted. Bravo!
