Summary
Debut picture book author Blair Thornburgh and award-winning illustrator Scott Campbell put their heads together to celebrate one of the most important bones in your body: the skull!

You probably don't think much about skulls.
So what's the big deal about them?

Well, every head
of every person
you've ever seen
has a skull inside.

And that includes YOU!

This smart, skull-positive story cheerfully dispels any fears kids might have about their skeletons, flipping our view of skulls from a spooky symbol to a fascinating, cool, and crucial part of our bodies.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A girl gets a bit of a scare when this book's narrator informs her that every head of every person you've ever seen . . . has a skull inside. Suddenly the faces of the men, women, children, and animals around her disappear to reveal grinning skulls of various sizes and shapes. Despite this startling development, the narrator assures her (and readers) that This is a good thing. The girl's fear is quickly replaced by curiosity, and simplified facts about skulls are playfully relayed for the remainder of the book. Skulls are safe and snug, like a car seat for your brain, the text attests, as a four-wheeled skull cruises by with a cute, pink brain smiling inside. Readers will also learn that skulls give faces their shape, hold teeth in place, and have holes for light, sound, air, and grilled cheese sandwiches. The book's silly tone is gleefully evident in Campbell's watercolor illustrations and guaranteed to get kids giggling and proclaiming, I love my skull! Concluding Cool Skull Facts offer readers more precise information.--Julia Smith Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Skulls can be scary looking, but, this book proposes, they are precious things. "You probably don't think much about skulls," opens Thornburgh (Who's That Girl), addressing the reader in a confiding tone. But everyone has one, and "skulls are safe and snug, like a car seat for your brain." With a deft blend of yuckiness and hilarity, Campbell (Sleepy, the Goodnight Buddy) draws a little skull on four wheels with a brain enclosed safely inside. Thornburgh expounds on her subject's virtues: "Skulls have holes in them... for sounds, for light, for air, for grilled cheese sandwiches." Some are afraid of skulls, she admits, but the reader is surely not one of those: "You love having a safe place to keep your brain." Including readers in this group of rational humans makes Thornburgh's ending message especially effective. "Take care of your skull," the text advises, as Campbell shows a girl and her grinning skull in a bicycle helmet, "because you only get one." Sometimes, this highly entertaining disquisition reminds readers, things that seem frightening at first can become quite wonderful once you get to know them. Ages 4-8. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
