The Amazing Human Body Detectives by Maggie Li

Our body is an amazing thing and there's so much more to discover about it than meets the eye. The Amazing Body Detectives is a fun and informative insight into the inner and outer world of our bodies. No nook and cranny is left undiscovered, no goosebump left unexplored. We all know that we all have unique fingerprints, but did you know that we also have a unique tongue print? Did you know that when you are awake, the human brain has enough electricity whizzing about to power a light bulb? Our eyelashes have little creatures living on them - come and take a look at them! Following on from BUG DETECTIVE, this follows the same interesting, fun and informative look at different parts of the body. Hidden elements appear on every page making this interactive and enjoyable. Taking a more lighthearted approach than many other books on the market, this book covers the key facts with fun and humor, as well as dispelling the myths.
Publisher: Pavilion Books
ISBN: 9781843652977
As a child I loved any books about the human body and I think this one would have been a popular favorite of mine.
As soon as the reader opens this book they begin a journey through the human body. Each topic has a double page spread which is jam packed full of information, facts and challenges which will keep readers busy and interested for some time. The pages are cleverly laid out to maximise space but also provide lots of information for inquisitive children or for inclusion of those school projects! 
This is a must have book for school age children as the starting point for many projects or revision. It is a great book about the human body and will capture a child's imagination when they ask how do we see, what happens to food when we eat it, or how can i feel?
Thank you to the publishers, Pavilion Books, for sending me the book to review.
