How Your Body Works by Judy Hindley

This is a classic Usborne book which has been enjoyed by three generations since its first publication in 1975 - now completely reillustrated by the original artist Colin King, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Usborne Publishing. Anyone who remembers this book from their own childhood will love to introduce a new generation to this unique visual explanation of how the human body works. Those previously unfamiliar with it are in for a treat. It covers all the basics of human biology.


'A fascinating and engaging subject for curious kids and a timely reprint of a really brilliant book' - Read it Daddy'

'Nearly 20 years after I put the original in my loft, and having studied Biology at university, I still think of my brain as a little call centre with people barking orders down the phone to my arms and legs' - The Biologist
