I read this book to my kids about a week ago and they loved it! My oldest son shocked me last night by telling our friends about the book and remembered some really difficult names...and he's 5!

This book has gross, but never crude information about parasites in it and it is a great read. The illustrations made the complex world of parasites totally understandable and fun to my 4 & 5 year-old audience. This book is pretty long for that age group but they loved every moment of it and never tired.

This covers human and animal parasites and how they get into you and the other animals, what they look like, what their purpose is, how they harm or don't harm you, how some of them are beneficial, and how some of them live amazingly crazy life-cycles.

My kids are pretty young, but I found the information fascinating as well. I would venture to say this is a book for readers of all ages, who have a little bit of curiosity and humor in them. I never ventured to think that parasites would be fun learning about, but this book does just that.

I am a scientist working with parasites. When I heard about this book I ordered it for my friend's kids (6 and 10 years old), and they LOVE it. It is very educational and accurate while making the subjuct matter fun. Even the adults in the family love this book. They have been all reading it over and over and talking about the content.

I happen to be a parasitologist and I love this book. I think that it is remains super FUN while being educational. I have bought it for several children (between the ages of 5 and 12) of friends of mine as well as nieces and nephews. The kids all get a huge kick out of this book and read it over and over and talk about it lots.

This is one of those "fun for the whole family" books. I highly recomend it!

My 9-year-old daughter loves everything about animals, starting with dinosaurs when she was younger. When I got this book, I knew that this is too easy for a 9-year olds but since I could not find the similar books about parasites that are equally entertaining, I decided to get this for her. She loves it and now taking a bath is never an issue.
