The Lovereading4Kids comment

This riveting book tells you everything you need to know about the most disgusting things on the planet. With a yuck factor rating you’re told quite how disgusting something is. Great information to share with friends. But there’s also an educational undercurrent to the whole book so it’s particularly good for those reluctant readers who relish the opportunity to get one up on their friends!!


100 Most Disgusting Things on the Planet by Anna Claybourne

100 Most Disgusting Things on the Planet is divided into a range of categories, from disgusting animals, plants, and other creatures to disgusting foods, disgusting inventions, and of course a selection of revolting human body bits such as snot, scabs and earwax. Each page includes a revoltingness rating and intriguing description of the disgusting topic in question, along with stunning photographs and diagrams. Side boxes and a science section on every page give extra angles and valuable educational insights into the most disgusting things our world has to offer.


'With eye-catching page layouts and no-holds-barred photographs, this mini-encyclopaedia of all things revolting is fascinating. A thoroughly engaging read.'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
