The Gross and Goofy Body series takes readers on a fresh and innovative journey through the body, giving them a fascinating view into all the weird and interesting things about human and animal bodies. Written in a fun, kid-friendly tone, and arranged in lively, illustration-full spreads rather than chapters, these titles couple gross and goofy facts about the body with serious science. Each title explores a new area or function of the body and is packed with visuals, including scientific photos as well as fun illustrations. A note from the author tells readers how information was gathered, and a “find out more” section includes websites and books.
