"What Body Part is This?" (GMTA Review)

Title: "What Body Part is This?"
Author(s): Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends/MacMillan
Ages: 8+
Rating: 5

Review: By far one of the cutest nonsensical books ever written, "What Body Part is This?" is in a league by itself. I actually laughed out loud while reading it at some points until my sides hurt. 

A genuine mix of .1% fact and 99.9% fiction this book is great for kids 8 and up. It's fun and silly and even gives a few interesting ideas on how to get rid of germs. For instance, did you know that if you mixed a teaspoon of gravel and whiskey and drank it down that it could cure a sore throat? Sure thing! Apparently, one of the author's grandfather's figured that one out. The germs get drunk off the whiskey and have a rock fight and kill each other! How ingenious is that?! That's only one example of the wonderful humor found in this book. I definitely recommend for middle grade readers.
