A close-up look at an unpleasant fact of life -- barfing. It will help youngsters to know what to expect when feeling very ill, and how this is a shared experience amongst animals and humans alike. The pictures are great too.

I spent as much time on picture portraits on the end pages of this book as I did on the funny narrative itself.

This entire book is on the subject of barfing. A young girl walks you through what happens from when you first get a flu bug, to feeling sick to your stomach and trying not to barf to finally barfing all over the place (even at school) because you simply can't help it. There are plenty of illustrations showing how everyone barfs (and by that she means many different animals including her dog who barfs up socks).

The illustrations are colorful and fun and done in such a way that you don't get totally grossed out.

I couldn't resist reading this book after reading the title. The story made me laugh. Because truly, everybody barfs and it can be terribly embarrassing. The girl tells it like it is without being overly gross. She worries about going back to school, but the other kids are just glad she is back in school.

I don't know that this is a great read-a-loud story but a definite winner for school age children through third or fourth grade. What kid doesn't want to read about barf?
