Gr 4–6—Disgust is in the eye of the beholder, but even the most seasoned revolting-trivia fanatics will find new stomach-churning information in these volumes. Writing with undisguised glee, Perritano covers all kinds of animal parasites and repellent behaviors, nauseating foods, bacteria-ridden locales, and challenging occupations from sewer worker to corpse grinder. Even just a glance at the photos of an oxpecker excavating a wildebeest's nose in Animals or flensed sheep heads on a butcher's shelf in Foods will turn the toughest stomachs—and guarantee urgent demands for similar gross yet fascinating titles.
