Booger Books

I’ll have you know that I almost gagged several times while compiling this list. Now that is dedication for ya!

To start this booger book list we will go with Billy’s Boogers. Billy likes to draw. This is great, except for the fact that it drives his teacher and the principal crazy. However, the librarian comes up with an idea that Billy can’t resist. Yes, it involves drawing a booger! One really neat thing about this book is that there is a small book inserted into this title and you get to read that too.

The Booger Book: Pick It, Lick It, Roll It, Flick It ohhh myyy. Yup, this one is full of gross. This book includes about 24 illustrations and has silly things you shouldn’t do with boogers like “You should NEVER wipe your boogers under your desk at school.”  Pretty sure boys will pick it up and want to tell you all about boogers.

If you don’t hate the Captain Underpants books (and honestly, they have gotten a LOT of boys reading,) try Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets How is that for a long title? A sneeze. One little sneeze and everything changes. Well, actually Melvin Sneedly changes. Into Bionic Booger Boy. Funny, gross, boy humor galore. See also: Captain Underpants Bionic Booger Boy – pt 2 because series books are great and they will want to read the next one for sure.

With this title you get two in one – farts and boogers! Sir Fartsalot Hunts the Booger is a silly romp through the Kingdom of Armpit. It all starts with a prank (another favorite of boys) which leads to a quest.  Simply put: boys will like this book a lot.

Booger Books! Yes, they are gross. Very gross. They are also terrific for getting boys reading. Click to see the list.

When you do a booger book list you know you are going to run into a book about a kid who likes to eat them. This is that book: Boogers for Breakfast is about a young boy named Max. Will his family be alright with his new “taste” sensation? This picture books has a rhyming story line as well as fun illustrations.

Richard was a Picker is not about guitars my friends. Richard is a kid who picks his nose. He picks his nose a lot. He picks it so much that his finger gets stuck up his nose and that isn’t all.  I won’t spoil the book by going into to much picking detail but it is gross, the illustrations are gross and it is very booger boy friendly.

There you go. Booger books for you (um, maybe not) and your boys to enjoy.
