Ashland, Or. : Bathroom Readers Press, c2006.
144 pages

Who doesn't love bizarre trivia and ghost stories? This is a fun collection of stories that will either make you laugh out loud or feel nauseous, or possibly both. Uncle John will tell you how to make a real mummy, too bad the first ingredient is a dead body, makes it a little hard to try at home. Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhen-uakitanatahu is the world's longest place name. You will have to read the book to find out where the city is located and what it means. Or you could google it, hopefully I spelled it right for you even though Spell-checker doesn't seem to think so. These are just a few of the amazing things you can read about in this fun bathroom reader. There are many other titles in this series that are equally fascinating.

You have to love that cover. When I was a kid, I loved this sort of stuff - trivia, arcane knowledge, and gross stuff. Sounds like this book has it all. And now, all grown up, I think I want this book for the cover alone!
