The "So..." collection is full of cheeky stories that are particularly aimed at reluctant boy readers, but have proven to have a very wide general appeal.
What happens when your mother feeds you more roughage in a week than a health farm dishes out in a year? How will Macca "iron gut" Mactavish's mates make him throw up? How will Gumby Mason score a boogie from his football Coach? If you're a fan of cockroaches, vomit, boogie, and turds - then So Gross! is the book for you. A hilarious collection of seven of the funniest and most revolting stories ever, this book is not for those with a weak stomach...
Kal Kingi brings energy and a brisk, conversational tone to J. A. Mawter’s So Gross, a collection of stories about boys who enjoy humor about bodily functions.
In the first story, Plunger develops uncontrollable flatulence as a result of his mother’s recent obsession with health food. In another, a group of boys try to create a menu designed to make Macca MacTavish vomit.
In his performance, Kingi’s narration is deadpan and down-to-earth, but his characterizations are often exaggerated to great comic effect.
