    1. This is one book from a series called, "Disgusting Critters".My boys and I have read a few of these, and they always get a kick out of the content, illustrations, and humor. There is factual information about head lice in this book (dispels some myths), and it's also very silly to appeal to children. The set would make a great gift.Thank you Netgalley for a free digital copy for review.


    2. From the Disgusting Critters series, a light-hearted introduction to the tiny parasite everyone dreads that will leave you itchy.


    3. I found one of Elise Gravel's Disgusting Creatures series at the library, Head Lice! While I've dealt with this tough critter in my classes (head itching always) in the past, there are things I didn't know, like they ONLY live on human blood, not any other living creature. She writes about dogs, "Let the fleas have 'em!" Now I need to discover and read more of these informative and lively books. The simplicity of the cartoon story is well done, offering lots of information easy to read for young [...]


    4. Well, I did learn something--not sure that I ever knew that lice eat/drink human blood. I thought they just ate, you know, hair protein or something. In hindsight that does seem a little silly, but so does the existence of a parasite that serves no purpose other than to colonize human hair and be annoying.



    5. What a fun way to learn about a gross little insect. I am excited to read more in the series. Concise, educational and funny.




    6. Elise Gravel is my favorite new early reader author/illustrator! Her books are in high demand in my library.


    7. More reviews at Mrs. ReaderPants.WHAT I LIKED: This is a really cute introduction to head lice for young readers. An unnamed louse "friend" presents basic facts about lice in a fun and cute way that will easily engage young readers.The information is straightforward, but the narrator louse makes a cute comment about each one that will make it easier for children to remember the facts. I really liked the one about the "glue" that lice use to attach their eggs to human heads (p. 20-21).Children wi [...]


    8. After receiving The Spider from Tundra Books, I happened upon an ebook copy of Head Lice from Netgalley and had to read it. I really enjoyed The Spider and wanted to read this one as well.Head Lice is again a non-fiction book about a disgusting creature, a louse. Now where The Spider is cutesy and fun and information I still couldn't help but scratch my head the whole time I was reading about head lice (ick). The pictures were cute and the character again inserts his funny little quips with each [...]


    9. What's not to love with a series entitled Disgusting Critters? Filled with kid appeal since it features large digital cartoon illustrations, this book relates interesting facts about those most-dreaded of insects. Not only is the book short and informative, but it serves to refute some common misconceptions about head lice, including the fact that they are attracted only to unclean hosts, which, of course is not true. I really enjoyed the discussion of how lice travel from one place to another a [...]


    10. This book contains an entertaining mixture of facts about Head Lice, with a Louse character used throughout the book to make the humorous comments. It gives details about the life cycle and lifestyle of Head Lice in text and illustrations. This book will help young children develop a growing awareness of how head lice move from one person to another, reassure them that having them is not a sign of being dirty and encourage them to keep their head and hair coverings away from others!This book cou [...]


    11. Book: Head LiceNonfiction Copyright: 2015Appeal: IntermediateI chose this book because it was a great way to introduce the concept of head lice in a fun, interacting way for a children's book. Its easily to confuse as a fiction book, but the whole story, is about how lice can be received and moved from head to head. Twin Text: Underground by Denise FlemingThis was a fun text that dealt with insects that live beneath the ground. Its not necessarily dealing with lice, but it deals with other insec [...]


    12. Yes, it is safe to pick up this book! Head lice can only live on human hair. Gavel has added to her series of Disgusting Critters with this early reader book narrated by a head louse. Kids will learn fact among the jokes in this book, but a book filled with photographs of lice will make the story more realistic. Even so kids will enjoy reading about this insect that fills every school secretary’s heart with terror when she has to examine a head for lice. (Review copy from LibraryThing)


    13. Whoa! Head lice! Who needs them? Who wants them? Elise Gravel gives us an entertaining and educational look at what every kid fears – head lice in school – and everybody knows!With cool illustrations and a witty text, we get what we never got before – just what these critters are up to – not on YOUR head of course, but on the heads of those kids who are nasty!Buy this one and get the lowdown on these crazy critters!


    14. This is a fun non-fiction book about lice is presented as a standard picture book. I really like the idea and concept. It's making kids learn while they think they are reading a story. Plus in this title, the head Louse is pretty cheeky and even offers to give you the answers to your math test if you promise to let him stay on your head.


    15. This is another cute and a bit disgusting book in the Disgusting Creatures series. Cute illustrations accompany interesting facts with a bit of humor thrown in. Elementary school children should enjoy this book. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.


    16. A disgusting yet delightful discovery, Elise Gravel's Disgusting Critters series introduces beginning readers to facts regarding certain familiar creatures. The humor and illustrations will appeal to kids and will want them to read more. Addicting for adults as well!



    17. These Disgusting Critters books have just the right amount of information combined with lots of humor. This particular title is a little more "disgusting" than some of the others in the series.


    18. A weirdly endearing, mostly factual, a little humorous look at head lice. Would be a great read-aloud for caregivers and kids dealing with lice.


    19. Another fun/gross addition to the Disgusting Creatures series.How come every time you read about head lice, you just can't help but start itching?






    20. I was laughing out loud as I read this book, hilarious hybrid text making you laugh about one of life's grosser bugs!


    21. Funny info text about lice. Great example of voice in text, not a stuffy, rigid fact book by any means.
