Synopsis

Oh, Ick! by Joy Masoff

Covering an A-Z range of disgusting topics from Archnids to Zits, Oh lck! addresses the questions that kids really care about. Why do we fart? How are tarantulas different from spiders? Can a voice really shatter glass? Masoff and contributors Jessica Garrett and Ben Ligon provide hands-on experiments so kids can find answers for themselves and truly understand the science. Learn how a burp works by trapping one in a balloon...and than letting it out! Learn the ins and outs of acne with a Pimple Cake...pop it, then eat it! (Eww!) The experiments offer clear, step by step instructions and advise kids when it's necessary to grab a friendly adult for some assistance. Following each experiment is an explanation of What Just Happened?, teaching kids the science behind the project. Did you know that we need burps and farts to get excess air our of our tummies? Or that a pimple is a war zone between a dead-skin-and sebum cocktail and the bacteria P. Acne? Plus fun facts: The Komodo Dragon wins the world's worst breath award, with over 50 kinds of bacteria in its saliva!

Reviews

Chapters cover everything from arachnids to zits... all explored thoroughly through experiments, photos, cartoon illustrations, and an entertaining narrative... The gross-out quotient has a natural draw, but there's substantial scientific knowledge to be absorbed throughout. -- Publishers Weekly A lighthearted compendium of interesting formation and engaging, hands-on activities with gobs of kid appeal. -- Kirkus Reviews Expect to get messy, have a lot of fun, and do science! -- Geek Dad
