What’s that funny feeling coming from your gut? It could be oozing stomach acid or a booming belch or stinky fart that is ready to burst. These revolting reactions happen during the digestion of food. Once you’ve mashed up and swallowed a meal, your body has to turn it into energy, water, and . . . well . . . poop. Find out about all the nasty things that happen deep inside your belly – and learn why they sound, smell, and feel the way they do. With close-up pictures and lots of disgusting facts, this book tells all about the gross science behind your body’s functions.

“Kids love to be grossed out and that is where this series excels. Based upon biology and elements of human anatomy these books are a great hook to help readers learn the facts about our bodies, well, the gross parts.” —Library Media Connection

School Library Journal

“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
