The Lovereading4Kids comment

Loads of facts about every part of the body are crammed into this highly illustrated book. And many of them certainly are gross! No sensibilities are spared in this guide to the smells, sights, sounds and look of many different parts of the body. The science that underpins it is good making it a useful source of knowledge as well as fun to read. A great series to get kids into reading. Titles in the series include Human Body, History, Creepy Crawlies and Animals.

Mitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects than anybody on Earth * Chris Tarrant * Animals, creepy crawlies and the human body are tackled in a Horrible Histories way, and each book is packed with the sort of disgusting trivia that delights children under eight. -- Toby Clements * The Telegraph *
