Dozens of further filthy animal facts and falsehoods: the follow-through to the international bestselling sensation Does it Fart? How many spiders do you eat in your sleep? What does the ice-cream you eat have to do with the back end of a beaver? Do komodo dragons have toxic slobber? Is it true that a scorpion that sheds its tail dies of constipation? How far actually are you from the nearest rat? Can you get high from licking toads, or is that...fake newts? All this and far, far more can be found in True or Poo, a guide to the wonders of the natural world: and a manual for disgusting and one-upping your friends and enemies for years to come.
This book stinks! Hold your nose while you find out absolutely everything you never knew about poo! Did you know that.. A week's worth of elephant poo weighs as much a 25 people? A lifetime of farts would fill 2,000 balloons? The world uses enough loo paper in an hour to wrap around the Earth 14 times? This irresistibly disgusting book for children will teach you all you need to know about all kinds of animal dung and human waste - what it's for, how it's made, where it goes, and lots more! Poo comes in all shapes and sizes. Every animal has its own special sort and some have fascinating uses for it. Wombats use their cube-shaped droppings to mark their territory; potato beetles build a shield of dung for defence; male hippos spray out a faecal shower to attract mates; and rabbits and dung beetles eat their pellets for extra nutrition. We might call it "waste" but in fact, poo is among the most useful stuff on Earth. From building materials and paper to coffee and even water purification, there's a multitude of manure-based matter in our lives. This unique book is jam-packed with scientific explanations and amazing trivia about human and animal deposits. Did you know, for example, that the global population produces more than a million tonnes of poo every day? Or that an average poo contains 10 trillion bacteria? Or that wars have been fought over guano? All these facts and more are presented, either with jaw-dropping CGI illustrations or eye-popping photography. Additional boxes feature infographics that make information easy to understand. With endlessly interesting information and incredible visuals, It Can't Be True! Poo is the perfect way to entertain and amuse your friends, family, and yourself. In fact, you'll never look at poo in the same way again!
The moon is the same size as Australia. A blue whale's heart is as large as a car. This fun volume wows the reader with impressive facts about the world that are difficult to believe, but true. Full color.
Author Jeff Vogel did not go into parenthood with any delusions. He knew that he would love his daughter, and that was terrifying. What if he screwed up? And he knew that life with a baby would be different, that it would be filled with an endless stream of filthy diapers, unexplained wailing, and sleepless nights. Not to mention no sex. The parenting books painted a picture of smart, communicative babies and mindless, limitless joy, but he knew they were lying to him. So he wrote his own book. The Poo Bomb: True Tales of Parental Terror recounts, in a no-punches-pulled style, the first year of life of Cordelia, Jeff's freshly hatched, gooey human girl. The first year of parenthood isn't about joy or fulfillment. It is about menial labor, wiping up human waste, and marking time until the kid is old enough to run and play and thank you for its life. Jeff chronicles the journey through the morass of year one week by week. Rich with irreverent honesty and humor, The Poo Bomb is the reality show of parenting books: It reflects what most parents have sometimes guiltily felt about their not-so-delightful bundles of joy.
This book is the documenting of all my life stories in the bathroom and anywhere related to bathroom behavior. I, like many humans, have many experiences and stories and have enjoyed sharing them in the book. The observations are from many years and many places I have had the opportunity to visit as I've traveled throughout the US and other countries. We don't plan the memorable events that happen in the bathroom, but they happen to all of us without exception. The difference is the people who can find the humor in the event and are willing to share.

"Revolving Doors" is an adult, autobiographical novel in which 'Richard', now over sixty, recalls incidents of his nightmarish first five years of childhood, while fostered through 17 residences as a ward of Toronto's "S.W.York Co. Children's Aid Society." From his perspective and understanding as a small child, he shares details of memories of unspeakably perverse mistreatment, including perpetual abuse, torture and even rape. After years of counselling and treatment for ensuing, debilitating mental illnesses, 'Richard' experienced a "black-out," resulting in the sudden awareness of long-buried, traumatic memories. The Author, Ms. Ketteringham, graphically details her brother's incredible victimization/survival story by interweaving his recollections, and relentless nightmares, with documentation from the organizations involved. It is "Richard's" most sincere desire that his story of ultimate survival might encourage similar abuse victims who may be searching for hope in facing and fighting their own demons.
