This fully illustrated treasury of ten rhyming five-minute stories is a playful introduction to the human body.

Great to read aloud and packed full of fun and humour, the stories help young readers aged 5+ to understand the inner workings of our body... explaining how we breathe, move - and poo!

Lively tales told in rhyming verse are followed up with non-fiction explainers which summarise the science behind each story.
