Fabulous review that warns the reader of impending grossness. I love it. And, as an elementary school substitute always looking for new books to read the kids, this one sounds fun. Thanks.

What a wonderful, detailed and descriptive review of this book. This seems to be a good addition to any early childhood teachers library. It would be a great addition to a senses theme lesson. I am very glad that the pictures were of good quality with few words. Your spot on about the age recommendations and saying that even emerging readers would enjoy this book. I will be definitely recommending this book to others.

It's absolutely fun and hilarious! I love to have a good laugh sometimes and this did it for me. I think children will love the illustrations and rhymes. Thanks for the amazing review. Please feel free to check out mine too.

Latest Review: Illustrated Short Fiction of William H. Coles: 2000-2016 by William H. Coles

Post by ShailaSheshadri » 29 May 2018, 06:56

This children book has an appealing title. I liked the way the reviewer has put her views towards this humorous picture book meant for young readers. Though the theme appears to be gross, or may be unpleasant, reading this book may lead to lots of fun and laughter. There is curiosity in the content, to decipher the reason behind the nasty smell.

I liked this book, for, this children book is full of illustrations. Illustrations help children grasp the story fast. Also, young children love looking at the pictures while reading. This looks like a real fun for children.

Even though this book has a silly plot, I believe, it will attract young readers due to the images. Once they start reading, they get light-hearted pleasure through funny illustrations and story.

Your review makes this gross narrative appear to be an irresistible page-turner.

This sounds like a good for children to learn about odors and ibcreasectbeir vocabulary at the same time. I smiled at knowing this is a humourous book.
