Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Remarkably comprehensive...Well-organized and systematic in its approach, this is an especially desirable work. A thorough, accurate, and attractive effort that's useful for quick reference as well as for a deeper examination of the topic."
Kirkus Reviews

"Captivates readers with an engaging look at the inside and outside workings of the human body....A fresh perspective on health and wellness and a useful resource or browsing selection for nonfiction collections."
School Library Journal

"An entertaining, informative and sometimes gross read for kids, teens and even adults....it includes clear, color pictures and diagrams to make explanations of various bodily functions easily understood, and it even contains some fun do-it-yourself-at-home science experiments."
Current Newspapers

"What is different about this book is that it uses humor and what children enjoy – gross tales – to explain bodily functions in a way that kids will find engaging.
Parentcircle.com

“Jam-packed with gross stories, cool diagrams,and fun facts, this book also includes do-it-yourself projects that demonstrate different body functions."
—Learning Magazine

"Uses humor, bright illustrations and fun stories about animals to get kids interested in everything from why their earspop to the purpose of saliva.”—
Bethesda Magazine
