Susan E. Goodman lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
Elwood H. Smith lives in Rhinebeck, New York.From Booklist:
With books available about gas and poop, could urine be far behind? Goodman, the author of The Truth about Poop (2004), tells kids everything they wanted to know about pee--and some of it is quite startling. After explaining how urine has saved lives (and yes, drinking is involved), she takes a look at physiology or "pee basics"; the how-tos of urinating (standing up, sitting down); "Peeing through history"; how animals pee; and uses for urine (vitamins, gun powder, and many, many others). As in the previous book, Smith provides jaunty, sometimes silly cartoon-style illustrations, including one of a woman pouring urine through a funnel into her husband's ear (a method pioneers used to treat earaches). The journey from drinking liquids to making urine is amusing, but a little convoluted for clarity. For reasons not readily discernable, some terms in the text are spelled out in bright yellow--among them, neon bright, stinky, no underpants, piddle-paks, and chipped pee off the shuttle. It's a book kids will pore over. Ilene Cooper
