What makes your body work? Is it all in your mind? Sort of! Take a tour of the human body from head to toes and everything in between.

Aimed at curious children who want to know how their body works and how their brain keeps it running, The Brainiac’s Book of the Body and Brain answers need-to-know and quirky questions about the bodies we live in.

This fun-filled introduction to the often complex, sometimes gross, and completely fascinating functions of the human body explores what happens to the food we eat, how medicines can fool us into making us feel better, as well as how and why we dream. Showcasing and celebrating the differences that make every person unique, this inclusive book features easy and fun practical activities and experiments, including keeping a poo diary and optical illusions.

Written with a zany sense of humour and packed with facts and hands-on activities, this latest instalment in the Brainiac’s series is the perfect creative and accessible introduction to biology.
