We call it a waste product, but poop can also be bricks to build a house, fuel to power a trip to Mars, wipes for a baby's bottom, buttons for your next sweater. Poop? YES! POP! And that's not all. Birds drop it as bombs. Mole-rats use it as a password. Sharks track their prey with it. People cook with it, sculpt with it, and even use it as a Frisbee! While we politely avoid the subject, amazing things are happening in digestive tracts all over the world. Kids (and adults too!) will be captivated by the astounding facts contained in this fascinating book, featuring hilarious illustrations.
