Gross Sports! by Ellen Labrecque


Gross Sports! by Ellen Labrecque

Sweat, spit, toe jam, blood, and other yucky stuff is a big part of sports, but this is the first book to give kids a gooey-eyed view of the topic. Who is the sweatiest NBA player? What NFL player is the best passer-of gas? Who cleans all those dirty socks? And why does a spitball work? Including stories from all the major sports and even some tips on yucky stuff kids can make for their own teams, Gross Sports is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with boys who love getting dirty almost as much as they love playing sports.
