A noted zoologist teams up with a playful illustrator to present a fun, fact-filled guide to the fascinating (if not fragrant) world of poop across species.

Hippos navigate by it, sloths keep in touch through it, dung beetles eat it . . . and most grownups would rather not to mention it. Meanwhile, scientists who study animal feces find out all sorts of things, such as how many insects a bat eats or just what technique a T. rex used to devour a triceratops 70 million years ago. However you look at it, poop is the quintessential prototype for recycling and probably the most useful stuff on earth. Take a peek at POOP and find out all you need to know — what it's for, where it goes, and how much we can learn from it.

Grownups don’t want you to talk about it, bunnies eat their own; badgers use it as a bulletin board. It comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and is actually very useful. Learn more than you can imagine about poop. Just don’t read this while eating!

My 3rd grade son had to do a book report on a science book - this was PERFECT! The class and teacher all loved it and he even loved doing it, which is not like him at all.
