Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The central theme of this book is just how amazing the human machine is, and it celebrates all of the extraordinary things bodies allow people to do. Cartoon-style illustrations fill each page and, like the text, are child-focused and appealing. Human growth and development, genetic variations, and sensory perception are major topics, and there are plenty of tips for keeping healthy and staying safe. Brief but frank explanations of touchy topics such as the difference between sex and gender, pubescent changes, and aging and death are included. Trivia, quips, captions, and jokes fill each margin, and despite some British vernacular, information is at turns both clinical and perfectly understandable. Hoffman and Asquith are clearly authorities not only on how the human body works but also on how to discuss complex and sensitive information with young people in a manner that is irresistibly fun and appropriately detailed. This is a quality resource for both topical reference or for recreational reading.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2016 Booklist"
