Yomtov, Nel. The Grimy, Gross Unusual History of the Toilet.

Yomtov, Nel.  The Grimy, Gross Unusual History of the Toilet.     Capstone Publishers, 2012.    48p   $30.65      ISBN 978-1-4296-5489-0     All Ages    E-BN         
Little-known details and amazing facts unfold as you read this unusual history of the toilet.     
The content was nicely chosen for young readers. It contained information that was interesting and not commonly found in other books on this topic.
Second in importance to the informative text, the next-best thing about this book is the humorous appeal to young readers.  The layout of the various pages is diverse and well balanced between text and full-color illustrations so that similes are grouped together.  The flow and balance of the text and visuals are integrated to present a very stimulating book for both young and reluctant readers.
The use of various background colors and distinctive boxes to highlight different topics
is quite effective.
  This is a great read for almost any age. Chuckles and gasps will certainly be heard when reading occurs.  This book is one in the Unusual Histories
series.  The series consists of two books at this time. The general theme of the series is bizarre tidbits.
