Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days


Full of weird and wacky facts and retro-inspired illustrations, Human Body is a fun introduction to everything from the strength of human hair to the storage capacity of the brain.

The human body is wild and strange--and these fascinating facts explore everything kids want to know, from the energy we create, to the bones that hold us up, to the bacteria that live inside us. Find out the real reason that ice cream gives us brain freeze, the true speed of a sneeze, and delightfully icky information about how much snot we produce in a day. There are even world records revealing the shortest, tallest, and fastest humans that ever lived.
