Waterstones Says

Adam Kay, author of the smash hit This is Going to Hurt, dissects the mysteries of our bodies on a hilarious and deliciously disgusting tour of our insides for younger readers.

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Children's Illustrated & Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2021

The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well ... pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your maths teacher’s is even weirder.

This book is going to tell you what’s actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like:

Are bogies 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 take a good book. (I 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 your insides. Welcome to Kay’s Anatomy*.

*A fancy word for your body. See, you’re learning already.

MEDIA REVIEWS

As brilliant, and revolting, as the human body it celebrates - The i newspaper

Like listening to a teacher who makes pupils fall about - The Times

Kay's Anatomy is totally brilliant - it's ultra child-friendly and chatty, and any young reader will learn a great deal about the body as they chuckle through each chapter - Jacqueline Wilson

It's fun and informative and just the sort of book I would've loved as a child - Malorie Blackman

If only this funny and informative book had been around when I was too embarrassed to teach my kids about bodily functions - David Baddiel

Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher - Konnie Huq

Absolutely packed with facts... Entertaining and highly informative - Daily Mail

Much funnier and more informative and more gross than Gray's Anatomy... I highly recommend for anyone - Dr Xand van Tulleken

Full of one-liners and packed with fascinating (and sometimes disgusting) facts - BookTrust

This is brilliant. I'm not jealous that I didn't write it at all. No, not one little bit - Dr Ranj Singh

“Entertaining and educational”

This will probably be a surefire hit with younger readers, it's fascinating and full of interesting information about the human body. There's a humourously silly element which will help make learning fun.

“Fabulous book”

I bought it for my granddaughter - she is nearly 7 which is a wee bit younger than suggested. She loves it, it is pitched just right for kids - her favourite bit is about poo! It was taken to school to show her... More
