Animals--they're cute and fluffy, cuddly and puffy, and ... sometimes downright disgusting. Get ready to be totally grossed out as you discover the incredibly icky ways animals eat, make their homes, and defend themselves. From award-winning author Melissa Stewart comes the grossest journey through the animal world you'll ever take. From ants to zebras, get ready to discover some seriously strange animal behaviors. Slurp up soupy insides with houseflies, spit sticky saliva to build nests with birds, and fend off predators with poop-flinging caterpillars and farting snakes. And that's just the tip of the dung pile! These yucky habits may seem surprising to us, but they're totally normal for these animals. In fact, their survival depends on them. Snappy text, incredible photography, and more cool features add to the learning fun. Ready to chew some fingernails with cockroaches? Dive into the disgusting world of animals!

National Geographic Kids is always sure to be a winner at my house. Their newest release has been deemed the favorite by my (almost) ten year old. ICK! Delightfully Disgusting Animal Dinners, Dwellings, and Defenses is as gross as its title suggests. Divided into three sections, the book presents interesting facts about animals and insects across the world, a few you may find in your own back yard. Full color photographs matched with boldly colored illustrations and typography make this an eye-catching read. We've spent hours looking through the pictures, and my son has happily told his friends and family members some of the new, and super-gross, facts he's learned. ICK! will make a great addition to your home or classroom library.
Good Points
-Full color photographs mixed with colorful illustrations and typography make this an eye-pleasing read
-Interesting and gross facts equals a fun-learning experience
