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.

It's fun and informative and just the sort of book I would've loved as a child. And I loved the True or Poo sections! - 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

“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
