At some point, all children become insatiably curious about how everything works - including the human body, and rightly so! The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well, pretty weird.
Adam Kay is an award winning writer, comedian and former doctor (his first book This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor was a Sunday Times number one bestseller for over a year) and he brings his intelligence and humour to telling you what's actually going on in our insides, and answers the really important questions, like: are bogeys safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its nutritional value. (Yes, they're safe. Chew away!), and: how much of your life will you spend on the toilet? About a year - so bring a good book. (We recommend this one.)
So sit back, relax, put on some rubber gloves, and let a doctor take you on a poo and puke filled tour of the human body. A great gift for children (and any adults who wish they could remember more from their biology lessons and want to bone* up in a fun and fascinating way).
