In a nutshell: warts and all joke-book guide to the human body

The introduction to this book contains a warning: reading it might make you LOL, but it could also make you GOL (groan out loud), or even SEL (scream even louder). It certainly does contain some gut-churning information about the human body, everything from why our feet smell to how many mites are living in our eyelashes (yuk), but in fact it’s the jokes and limericks that pop up at regular intervals that might really get readers groaning! Nonetheless it’s a clever and appealing way to dole out information about our bodies, warts and all, and children will be fascinated by what they learn. ~ Andrea Reece
