Every grownup knows that there is one universal topic that fascinates children without exception: poop and pee. But what they may not know is that throughout history, the products of our bladder and bowels have helped us to build houses, wash and dye our clothes, fertilize crops, treat illnesses, solve crimes, control pollution, and create fuel, energy, and explosives. With just the right amount of humor, this book uncovers the fascinating stories behind mankind's ingenious use of this most natural of resources, and young readers will love pouring over the droll illustrations and endearing characters that populate the pages. From wizards using 'magical urine', to soldiers fighting with exploding piles of dung, pee-wielding beauty therapists, and much, much more -- this book uncovers the history and the science behind the one topic that unites us, young and old.
