MEDIA REVIEWS
Bold illustrations enhance this fact-filled book about the human digestive system, explaining how food is broken down, how sense and sight affect taste, and more.--Books for Growing Minds
[Burp!] reveals how the everyday occurrence of eating is actually a fascinating scientific event. With captivating illustrations and try-it-yourself tests, this book - appropriate for ages 9 to 14 - is sure to engage any reader.--Science News
In Burp! Swanson explains the functions of the human body parts using a combination of facts, anecdotes and child-oriented experiments. Both books feature cartoon illustrations.--Publishers Weekly
Everything and anything anyone could want to know about the fine art of eating and the concomitant processes of digestion and elimination are presented in an engaging, amusing way in Burp! Beyond the obvious are sidebars that include the feats of speed-eater Thomas Carson - 22 hamburgers and two litres of ice cream in 25 minutes - and of Walter Hudson of New York, who weighed 1,197 pounds.--The Globe and Mail
Burp! is an awesome science book about eating and the digestive system. A real gas for kids 7 - 10.--Toronto Star
Burp! The most interesting book you'll ever read about eating is for children who can read well and digest, so to speak, considerable amounts of material. To sugar the medicine, basic facts are accompanied by stories worthy of Ripley's Believe It or Not. Though Rose Cowles's illustrations are of the Simpsons school of esthetics, they are nevertheless informative and entertaining.--The National Post
