    1. James Solheim Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the It's Disgusting and We Ate It!: True Food Facts from Around the World and Throughout History book, this is one of the most wanted James Solheim author readers around the world.

    2. Fun-for-all-ages treatment on world eating practices. The catchy title is the strongest suggestion in the book that the foods are disgusting. Open-minded coverage on habits often shunned by Western cultures. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it reads slightly choppy.

    3. I LOVE this book!What do you call a jack-o-lantern carved from a hot dog?A hollow weenie!Also, did you know marshmallows get their names from a swamp plant called the marsh mallow?

    4. Genre: Informational NonfictionGrade Level: K-6th GradeThis book of foods would be so so so popular in a elementary classroom. This could be read by the teacher to younger aged classes, or read individually by a student during some "free time." This book could keep the interest of ALL students because I think they'd love to see what people around the world really eat!

    5. This book effectively explains the origins of some of the strangest things that we as a society eat as well as other "gross" foods from across the globe. The book gives both entertaining explanations and cute poems in each section, so readers will be able to break up facts into multiple channels. Solheim also gives a bibliography and full citations at the end of the book to encourage further research for interested parties. It's an adorably fun book with quick facts, but the amount of informatio [...]

    6. This is a great book for pre-teens simply because it's so entertaining to read. Filled with interesting and gross information, this book is a great read for anyone interested in some of the weird things we eat daily and used to eat. A nice perk is that there are poems that go along with each disgusting food that we can't believe people actually eat. Nicely illustrated and easy to read, this is a great book for anyone's library collection.

    7. How about a nice dish of Colonial Squirrel Pie with a side of milkweed shoots? If that doesn't grab you, you might think about trying some Garbage Stew, just like they made in medieval England. But if you're feeling a little tired and need a boost, your best bet is roasted spiders. They've got three times the protein of cooked beef. (Is your mouth watering yet?) This book is full of food from all over the world and a true life account of tasting it all.

    8. This 1998 family favorite will still satisfy young readers who are hungry for that gross-out factor missing in much of nonfiction (or foodie books). The book contains a few dated sentences when describing cultural groups but as a whole I think the tone of the text does a good job of attempting to normalize "weird" foods (such as insects, frog, flower salad, seaweed) and questioning some "normal" foods (such as milk and cheese, mushrooms, honey, hot dogs).

    9. I got this book from a book fair when j was a child and I love it! As an adult, I love to cook so I am graduated toward any book that talks about how food is prepared especially in other cultures. Children will love it because it uses silly words and pictures to describe what other people actually eat in other places or used to eat many years ago!

    10. Ohhhhds love the ick factor of this book and they learn some things while they are at it! This is a culturally diverse book. Who knew earthworm soup is a traditional fever medicine in China? I didn't! Cute poems and captions are interspersed.

    11. Hundreds of facts about the history of eating are presented in a fun and interesting way in this book. This book can be read for the content about different benefits of random foods or to examine the poems and recipes included in the book.Recommended grade level: 1-5.

    12. While this was recommended as part of the unit on prehistoric man, most of it did not apply to that unit. Besides, my girly-girls were not interested in icky foods. But when the boy hits this lesson in four years, I have a feeling it's going to be a favorite

    13. Very interesting facts about foods we Americans find disgusting, and some we find appealing, too! Lots of visual interest; laid out almost "kids' magazine-like", in terms of pictoral and text asides on a page. Booklegger, grades 3-6.

    14. Cute illustrations. I paged through this and read parts of it to the kids. It was okay, but not the best style for reading out loud to a mixed age group. Would be a good book for older kids to read themselves as entertainment.

    15. An interesting book about the strange things people eat or have eaten around the world. There's some gross stuff in here, but not too bad. It was a little too old for my six year old. 8 years and up.

    16. Pretty icky but true stories of what has been historically eaten around the world. Decent addition to our study of nomadic first civilizations.

    17. This book is awesome! It has great history wrapped up in a package that will appeal to kids. I'm using this in a program this summer and I know the kids will love it.

    18. I thought it was an interesting short little book that was enjoyable to read. If you you have a weak stomach then you might not want to read it but it is a fun and quick read.

    19. So much fun!One of our family's favorites. A fun read. A great choice for every child's bookshelf.

    20. Love this! Fabulous illustrations and very intriguing stories about weird (and I mean weird) foods from around the world.
