OMG. I threw up a bit in my mouth. I could barely finish this book, and I had to flip really fast through some of the pictures. UGH, this book was sooo out of my element, I was completely grossed out. In saying this...kids will gobble this stuff up. Especially since they might not be allowed to watch a lot of zombie shows/movies this book is great for connecting those zombie shows with what happens in nature. Still it's super gross, and icky...and yet it was sorta fascinating...especially with what some of the worm hosts do... *shudders*
