Synopsis

Glenn Murphy, author of the best-selling Why is Snot Green? tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about the five senses. Find out which animal has the biggest eyes, what's inside your ear-holes, why sweaty socks smell so stinky, why sprouts and ice cream taste so different, why we can touch and feel things, and lots more!

As soon as I saw who the author was I knew we were in for a good read, ... 'Poo! What is that smell?' does not disappoint. Illustrations by Lorna Murphy help to get the points across and make understanding ideas such as the evolution of the eyeball easy. Glenn Murphy's background in science communication makes this so much more than just the list of gross science factoids you find in some kids popular science books. I found this book really valuable for providing explanations that were concise, at a level children will understand, but without being dumbed down.

It made a nice change to read a book full of interesting facts... It is easy to read and I found myself not wanting to stop. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to try something a bit different than a normal story book and give it 9/10.
