To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all - we love Andy Griffiths. But this book is by far our favorite. I have not laughed so much in a while. My 6yo son and I both love it. This is not an educational book - it’s a book about different body parts - mostly funny descriptions. For example - there is a page on Adam’s apple. This is what the book says: “other names for this big weird lump are: Bob’s banana, Fred’s fig, Greg’s grape, Malcolm’s mango, Leon’s lemon, Peter’s passion fruit, Rodney’s raspberry, Terry’s tomato and Walter’s watermelon.”
Anyway, If you like books like 13-story house, the Bad Guys or weird school, you’ll love this one as well.
When the reviews say that there is no educational value about this book, they meant it. I got a good laugh out of the first 15 pages, and then I felt dumb reading it to my kid who was excited to learn about the science of the body. I would offer that it may be a fun book for a pre-teen to borrow from the library or a gag gift, but I find no reason to own it on my shelf.
I did think there would be a little bit of learning with this book, no, it's correct 99.9% fact free. My 3rd grader did enjoy it as an Easter gift. Read it in about an hour. He thinks it is very hilarious
Bought a number of books by this author. My 2nd grade grandson loved all of them. His teacher said she likes this author and illustrator as well. My grandson has a good sense of humor, so plenty of belly laughs reading these books.
