Edward Kay is an award-winning children's television writer and science writer. Here he uses his knack for knowing what kids like to create an entertaining, laugh-out-loud book that's thoroughly researched and full of up-to-date facts. It offers strong curriculum links in the life sciences, particularly the human body structure and systems, and molecules and organisms. Adding to the fun are the funny comic-style illustrations by Mike Shiell on every page. (Yes, of course, there's farting!) Kids may not even notice they're learning science! A glossary and index round out this terrific book.
