Fun Gross Books For Boys Who Hate to Read

I have a 9 year old that doesn’t like to read anything even though my husband and I are avid readers. I wanted to find a few books that he would like over the summer. 

The Big Book of Boy Stuff by Bart King

It has tons of experiments, jokes and indoor and outdoor activities that are fun and sometimes educational. Now, it must be admitted that some of the entries are a little gross but it must be admitted that boys find such things terribly funny. Your non reader will pick up this book. Heck they may even ignore some video games. Good gift for boys age 9-15

Oh, Yuck! The Encyclopedia of Everything Nasty by Joy Massoff

Boys love stuff that's gross. From the liquids, solids, and gases-especially the gases!-or their own bodies to the creepy, crawly, slimy, slithery, fetid, and feculent phenomena in the world at large, kids with a curious bent just can't get enough. Oh, Yuck! The Encyclopedia of Everything Nasty brings together, in one book, all the good things about some of the baddest things on Earth. Girls may like this book as well. Good for 8 to 12 years old

Grossology by Sylvia Brazei

Barf, boogers, farts, body odor, burping, ear wax, bad breath and the other bodily functions that boys can't seem to get enough of. This gives them a chance to learn the science behind these, while they laugh hysterically at the illustrations and comments. Good for the boys that are refusing to pick up books over the summer!

Thanks MG I will have to check that book out as well. I am just hoping during the summer I can get him on a summer reading schedule.
Thanks for this list. I have boys like yours. My one son really likes "The Dangerous Book for Boys" by Hal Iggulden (I believe there are more books in this series), just to add to your list. It has activities for boys from days gone by when there was no TV or internet.
