Gr 2-4--For many children, "gross" and "fascinating" are synonymous. This latest series installment provides plenty of fodder over which readers can marvel and exclaim. This volume reads like a collection of Pinterest quotes. Each page contains one or two brief facts, most of which are related to bodily fluids or processes--all illustrated with photos and typeset in colorful, eye-catching fonts. Some are historical: "During the 1500s, Brits soaked fabrics in stale urine to help bind color dyes to cloth." Others refer to world records or interesting statistics. There is a detailed subject index and a complete listing of photo credits, but no source references. VERDICT Visually appealing and absolutely disgusting, this highly browsable book is best for the "general facts" shelves in public and school libraries.--Maggi Rohde, Ann Arbor Public Schools, MI
