Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - John Peters

"While gleefully catering to readers who relish references to “snot rockets” and the “living layer of slime” on everyone’s teeth, these informative guides also explain relevant chemical processes, medical rationales, and ecological functions in reasonably specific detail." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - Brenda Rogers

"STARRED REVIEW! Do not read these books during your lunch break! Despite the completely disgusting content of these books, it’s hard to put them down because they’re brimming with addictively fascinating information. Tweens and adults alike will be intrigued by the three pounds of bacteria wriggling around in their intestines and how scientists are creating renewable energy from dung. After passing these books around to folks of all ages, many wanted to borrow them! These well-planned books will make memorable introductions to science units, especially those on alternative energy, microorganisms, and digestion. The high interest, low-mid readability is perfect for reluctant readers, especially pre-teen and teen boys who like science. These books will appeal to that hard-to-reach group of boys. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
