I have had my eyes on this book for well several months. Sadly, Amazon either didn’t have it in stock or it was just way too expensive (20+ euro). But finally it came out and in a perfect price!
This book was terrific fun and reminded me 100% of those silly Horrible Science (and other books in the Horrible series) books that I have loved for many years. It has that same funny way of telling kids (and well adults) about science, about your body, about what makes it tick. It doesn’t shy away from gruesomeness and will really tell you EVERYTHING even the things you may not want to know. XD I flew through this book, sadly it took me a bit longer as I just had to sleep.
The book is separated in categories, from head to toes. From bones to nerves. I really loved that this was done and that this way you could also just go to the section you liked the most. Though I just read the book cover from cover as I didn’t have one specific section I wanted to see, I just wanted it all. We learn all about the body in this one, from what the eyes do and we meet every part of the eye in a fun introduction to what your brain is all about and how your left brain does right stuff and your right brain does left stuff. About lungs and bones. We also get a part on puberty. Not entirely what I expected but still a nice addition. The way it was written was tons of fun. We don’t just get facts, we get comics, interviews, silly introductions, and more. It just keeps you interested and makes you want to know more.
The illustrations (so many of them) were terrific fun and made the book even more fun and interesting to read. Plus, they made me laugh way too many times. XD
All in all, I hope that this duo makes more books like this because I am a fan! Highly recommended to all, kids and adults. I am sure this book will be loved by many!
