Summary

Get to grips with your insides and discover how the body works. This series takes readers on a visual tour of the human body, from the hair on your head to the tips of your toes. Packed with disgusting facts and amazing pictures, Body Works is sure to keep young readers captivated.

Following on from the successful Science Crackers series, Body Works explores the science of the Human Body. Bitesize facts and gross stories make information easy to digest.

Cartoon doctors take readers on a tour of the human body, answering all the important questions about how a body really works. For example, why does it feel like there are butterflies in your stomach? Why does your leg sometimes go to sleep? Questions help children to relate to science, and comical cartoons help them to visualise scientific facts.

Each of the four books explains the functions of different organs and systems. Lively and informative text is supported by clearly labelled illustrations and detailed photographs.

Each book contains five hands-on activities, from testing lung capacity to making a model stomach.
