You Smell!:(and so does everything else) Reader Reviews

Logan Upchurch

This is funny and enjoyable, even though they've ruined pandas and ice-cream. I can't wait to share it with my friends.

I really like this book, it's funny and enjoyable and full of facts that you can share with your friends, especially if they're eating cheese or popcorn. The funniest fact is that giant pandas sometimes do a handstand when they need a wee. The most disgusting thing is the foot-cheese, and they've ruined ice-cream. I used to really like ice-cream but now, ew! I can't wait to share this with my friends.

The perfect book for young children

This is a brilliant, brightly illustrated book all about smells, odours and pongs! As a part of nature, our survival and much more, this book shares interesting, silly and entertaining and above all smelly information about the human body. Even though soe facts are a bit yucky, there's lots for young readers to have a giggle at while they learn.

With ativities and experiments to have a go at too I think that this is a great book for young children.

This book is great, really interesting, funny and full of crazy, unbelievable but true facts.

‘You Smell’ is a non-fiction book on my favourite subject: smells! When I saw the cover, I was excited to read it and having read it I was not disappointed; this book is great, really interesting, funny and full of crazy, unbelievable but true facts.

Did you know that your feet can produce up to two cups of sweat a day? Or that in just one month, you can fart enough gas to inflate up to 20 party balloons? (although my mum says I can power up 40 party balloons!)

I especially like the way that the information is laid out, in all the speech bubbles. It is also extremely colourful, and the pictures are presented perfectly for me. It made the book easier to read and dip in and out of. 

I think this book is on a great and fascinating subject and would definitely recommend this to my friends, even the ones who don’t fancy reading very much. The best thing of all was when my mum asked what I was doing I could say “You Smell!” and not get into trouble!

I love this book!! It has so many interesting (and disgusting) facts.

I really liked this book from the first time I saw it. The cover is great and the title. It makes you want to open the book and find out more. I liked the illustrations and the way the book is laid out, it makes it much easier to get the information than if it was just lots of words typed on the page.
The book gives you lots of science and also lots of history, which was a great way to find out all about smells.
I think one of my favourite smelltastic facts was that Chinese armies used to make bombs out of poo and gunpowder!!

You need to get this book to find out loads more smelly facts.

I can't stop reading it. I love the pictures and there are lots of things to learn.
