Your mouth really is filthy! It’s a saliva bath for millions of tiny little creatures that share your food, chew holes in your teeth, and make your breath smell like a garbage truck.

Learn all about saliva, plaque, and the bacteria that infest your mouth – and find out how to keep that mouth of yours healthy. With close-up pictures and lots of disgusting facts, this book tells all about the gross science behind your body’s functions.

“These titles work the ick factor to the max with their irreverent style and over-the-top look at body functions. Solid information layered between sarcastic comments and kid-friendly terminology like fart, poop, barf, and puke will keep readers engaged.” —School Library Journal
