Review quote

The critics agree, they love "Poop and Pee"!
Chock-full of intriguing, gross, and bizarre facts about animal and human excrement . . . the subject matter will capture kids' attention and draw reluctant readers. . . Smith's retro cartoons . . . provide humor without being too gross. "School Library Journal" on "The Truth about Poop "
Very readable, appropriately visual, and exceedingly encompassing . . . The well-executed cartoon artwork successfully goes for the clever . . . Naturally, kids will find all this marvelously gross, but along with the yuks, they'll get plenty of information. "Booklist "on "The Truth about Poop"
? Science writer Goodman deserves a round of applause . . . for demystifying a risky topic. "Publishers Weekly "on "The Truth about Poop"
Elementary-aged boys in particular will be drawn to the yucky grossness of the topic but will end up learning from the text. A book full of interesting tidbits that students will remember and love to share. "School Library Journal" on "Gee Whiz! It s all about Pee! "
Goodman . . . tells kids everything they wanted to know about pee--and some of it is quite startling . . . Smith provides jaunty, sometimes silly cartoon-style illustrations. . . It's a book kids will pore over. "Booklist "on "Gee Whiz! It s all about Pee! ""
