Review from a 10-year-old boy.
“I highly recommend these books to read. They will gross your family out with some disgusting but amazing facts. You will get you so fascinated that you can’t stop reading it. The things that you’ll learn are truly awesome and you won’t stop talking about it. If you like gruesome facts then this is the book for you.” – Will.
