A little boy discovers some of his hair is falling out. Then he keeps realizing more terrible things are happening every day. He finds fuzz in his belly button, skin is peeling off his toes, his tooth begins to wiggle, so he jumps to the obvious conclusion…The glue that is supposed to be holding his parts together isn’t working. What will he do?!?

The bright pictures are quite funny and the little boy’s expressions are very good at revealing his genuine fear. This book is a great way to explain to young ones about growing up, and normal reactions of the body. It is also a great way to share a big laugh with the kids.
