MY THOUGHTS:
LOVED IT

This book is just hilarious and darn right educational as well.  Younger boys are going to adore this one since it is written in their language of gross.  Boys around nine or ten are sometimes difficult to buy gifts for and this one would be an excellent choice.  The chapter on vampire bugs will definitely delight them.  There are also notes on how to make fake blood, barf, snot and vomit.
