There's a fun search-and-find activity on each page, as well as a quiz at the end to see how much you've discovered about the human body.

Whether it's toxic signs and workers wearing biohazard suits in the large intestine, lab workers mixing gastric juices in the stomach with a giant whisk, or the lungs depicted as a gym, you'll find plenty to amaze and amuse in this comprehensive, fact-filled guide to the human body.
