Dirty Bertie: My Burptastic Body Book

Publisher: Stripes

Review

Explored within the ten hilarious chapters are fascinating topics, including superhero skin, disgusting digestion and, of course, poo and wee. The book answers the questions children really want to ask, such as ‘why do we burp?’, ‘is it ok to eat earwax?’ and ‘what’s the point of hair?’

The text is presented in bite-sized chunks, combining diagrams, lists and speech bubbles, with entertaining black-and-white line drawings, making it extremely accessible. With quizzes, fun experiments, a myriad of amusing facts and a comprehensive glossary, this excellent book is bursting with information as well as humour. Sure to be a hit, particularly with reluctant boy readers, this is a great non-fiction addition to the popular Dirty Bertie series.
