About the book:

A hilarious and eye-opening new look at the world around us.
Gross Universe is an eye-opening and sometimes stomach-turning journey of exploration into all of our own gross inner workings, and some of the more nauseating tales from nature and the world around us.
The humor of MAD magazine meets good old hard scientific fact. Always entertaining, in fact downright hilarious, author Jeff Szpirglas takes a scientific look at the many things about our physical selves and the other animals and plants around us that often go unmentioned. From our gross microscopic friends to our skin, hair, sweat, and other malodorous excretions, plus mucus, mold, acne, pus (a Perfectly Understandable Secretion), explosions, fossilized vomit, gas, and myriad other delightful subjects, this is science that will be sure to capture the attention of a young reader.
Szpirglas does not expose the sweeter side of life, but will keep young audiences enraptured, laughing, and learning. It may not always be pretty, but its definitely fascinating to uncover the scientific reasons for processes that happen to us and around us.
