Bizarre, incredible and downright gross facts about human and animal bodies
In Hair-raising Human Body Facts, you'll learn about some of the most incredible things going on inside you right now! Giggle and gasp as you read about and see some truly astonishing (and sometimes silly) parts of the human body, such as your super-cool cornea, which gets its oxygen from the air and has no blood at all flowing to it, or your secretly clever nostrils, which take turns breathing - that's some amazing teamwork!
The Body Bits series is written by the hilarious and knowledgeable Paul Mason, and illustrated by Dave Smith, whose laugh-out-loud and action-packed artwork can't be beaten. Reading and learning become a source of endless fun for even the most reluctant reader with Body Bits. Great for readers aged 7-9 years.
