Collins Big Cat - Yuck: Disgusting things that are surprisingly useful: Band 11+/Lime Plus

Paperback

People dislike bugs, such as mosquitoes, and think that germs and the human waste you leave in the toilet are disgusting. But did you know that they can actually have some surprising uses?

Lime Plus/Band 11+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina.

Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall.

Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.

Mio enjoyed writing ‘Yuck!’ because she’s fond of finding and sharing unexpected and surprising facts. She’s particularly suited to writing about yucky things because she’s always loved swapping facts with her two kids that makes everyone go, ‘ewwww!” but also make them laugh and think!

Book banded for guided and independent reading, there are reading notes in the back, comprehensive teaching and assessment support and ebooks available.

Mio Debnam is the author of over 20 books ranging from picture books to novels. She’s also a wife, mother to two kids, and has two dogs. She’s Japanese and was born in Tokyo but grew up mostly in Hong Kong and the UK, dreaming about becoming an intrepid animal scientist and writer, like her heroes David Attenborough, Jane Goodall and Gerald Durrell.Mio studied medical microbiology and genetic engineering at university, but got distracted from science by a job in finance, before finding her way back to working with words.She spent many years as an editor in chief of two children’s newspapers and as a children’s book editor for a publisher, but her greatest passion is in writing and storytelling. Mio loves sharing stories and giggles, and still enjoys regaling readers and unsuspecting passers-by of all ages with strange and fascinating facts…
