Poop: A Natural History of the Unmentionable (Animal Science) by Neal Layton,Nicola Davies



Nicola Davies graduated with a degree in zoology before becoming a writer, producer, and presenter of radio and television programs. Her award-winning books for children include BIG BLUE WHALE, ONE TINY TURTLE, SURPRISING SHARKS, and BAT LOVES THE NIGHT. She says, "As a zoologist, you are never far from poop! I've baked goose poop in an oven with my dinner, looked at bat poop under the microscope, and had my T-shirt stained pink with blue-whale poop. I was obviously fated to write this book. Nicola Davies lives in Somerset, England. Published on December 1, 2013.

by Davies, Nicola, 1958-; Layton, Neal, ill. Publication date 2004. Topics Defecation, Animal behavior, Defecation, Feces, Animals. 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.

Neal Layton's wonderful cartoon illustrations are a key part of the book, adding both information and entertainment. I can pretty well guarantee that adults will find it just as engrossing as children do - even if they don't want to admit it! Parents in Touch show more. Nicola Davies is an award-winning author, whose many books for children include The Promise, A First Book of Nature, Big Blue Whale, Dolphin Baby, and The Lion Who Stole My Arm. She graduated in zoology, studied whales and bats and then worked for the BBC Natural History Unit

The book is great & the mini-book is fine. Even the most reluctant readers will enjoy Poop. Plus, the reader gets a bonus of learning a little science & biology while being entertained. The kids will have no trouble reading it but middle aged mama might need to put on her reading glasses. The product of many unconventional artistic mediums-including an old toothbrush and a cake-icing bag-Neal Layton's hilarious illustrations will stir up giggles from children and adults alike. Especially funny are the personifications of animals, with thought bubbles above their heads. Some actual photographs of some of the subjects would be helpful (their outward appearance, not their waste). Obvious comparisons can be drawn between this and Susan Goodman's The Truth About Poop, illustrated by Elwood H. Smith, and The Scoop on Poop by Wayne Lynch.

Poop: A Natural History of the Unmentionable is a children's book about (animal) feces, written by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Neal Layton. The book gives info about the nature, production, variety, and manifold uses of animal poop. Not an instructional guide on bathroom self-reliance. It tells how naturalists study poop to determine animal diets and how paleontologists analyze fossilized poop to learn about prehistoric animals.

Mr Freeman
I have a 6 year old who loves learning about how bodies work, and also thinks poop is the funniest thing ever. This book is great! It's super informative and has adorable illustrations.

Love the book.... my daughter loves the book... but the print is TOO SMALL.

I would highly recommend the larger version of the book... which compared to other books... is "mini" but the font is "normal". It's easier to read and for the little one to follow along. By the way... my eyes are 20/20 and I have no trouble reading anything... I can read the mini book... it's just too small. 5 STARS for the larger book. It's fun and both your child and YOU will learn a lot! ENJOY!

By the way... it says for 9 to 12 years old. My girl is 5 and LOVED IT! She found it completely entertaining and interesting.

I bought this for my mother, as a gag-gift. She's a "poop talker", and I bought a few books, including "Everybody Poops". And this, it just happens to be fun AND educational. They all still sit in my mother's bathroom, but they're still adequate for bookshelves, if you're looking for a fun/interesting read, and aren't too poop-shy.

This book is interesting and has tons of information that even I didn't know. My daughter, who is only 3, loves this book and thinks poop is hilarious. It is long, so we only read part of it in one sitting.

Great explanation of where all the poop goes. Dung beetles!

Thanks to Unshelved for alerting me to this book.

I got so tired of my 5 year old saying "poop". And giggling with her friends about "poop".

Then I found this book at the library. It was fun and educational.... did I mention fun? Anyway, now that my little one knows all about animals and poop... she finds the science of poop so interesting... that the giggling about poop is gone! (For now at least!)

The book is really intersting and engaging. I loved it too!

As did my Mom... who teaches 5th grade... she had me buy the book for school!

I love this series of natural science books for kids. They interest me a great deal so while I'm using them to inform but also put an 8 year old to sleep, I'm enjoying myself and want to read on and on.
My granddaughters new favorite book.
