This book is full of questions you never thought to ask?and perhaps will wish you?d never had answered?including:

?What exactly is maggot cheese?
?How did anal hair help to lead to the conviction of the Great
?Train Robbers?
?What is the job of a ?fart catcher
How exactly do ?crabs? cause such intense itching around one's private parts?
?The real story behind why the toilet is often referred to as ?the john.?
?Why you might want to steer clear of some coffees. (Hint: If poo isn't exactly your idea of appetizing . . .)

Why Fish Fart and Other Useless (or Gross) Information About the World is sure to delight any and all hard-core fans of the obscure, esoteric, and?last but not least?grotesque.

   Not what I expected.
I expected a lot of short, fun facts and maybe a couple of pictures mixed in as well. But it was big stories made of a lot of long words. It all seemed a little funny and gross and possibly intimidating for a 4th grader that would want just boring facts. I even tried reading some of it and I was bored.

   Not what it seems
Very inappropriate for younger children. I thought it would be a cute book for my 6 year old from the cover and the title. It is not. The facts are often violent and gruesome. Inside there are also no kid friendly pictures, making it more suitable for older readers.

   Not just a kids book of interesting trivia
It is a book full of interesting information from the reason why animals do something, how in the late 1800s they determine if a human was dead or just unconscious, but I ended up reading it and liking it.

   NOT FOR 9-YEAR OLDS!
This came as a Amazon gift idea for a 9-year-old boy. My son will read anything and he loves humor - this book gave him nightmares! Getting into someone's eye????? This gave him nightmares and made us feel terrible for buying it in the first place. He told his father that the author had manipulated Mommy into buying it by putting a fun image on the cover that has NOTHING to do with the gross material described in the book.

   Not was expected
Yeah, not what my 9-year-old boy was expecting. Even though he was a reluctant reader, he did not find this entertaining at all. Don 't know, as we haven t gotten to this part or is it in there?

   Terrible
Not suitable for children of any age in bad taste, not in any way funny or intelligent, or interesting. I got my money back, of course.

   Gross stories good for little boys
Wasn 't what I expected, but it is still an interesting book. I was looking for more of a fact book '' and was referred to this one, which tells mostly disgusting stories. But my son enjoyed it so good for me!

   No pictures inside
Based on the cover, I expected this to be more colorful, but it is all text only.

   Very fun book.
I gave this to my son in his stocking for Christmas. We have fun reading together as a family and sitting down together. My children have laughed like crazy.
