The Brainwaves are little people on a big adventure! How the Incredible Human Body Works takes you on a rollicking, rip-roaring romp around the human body. Watch them fight with the body's defence force against invasions from toxic bacteria, dodge squirting digestive juices that can reduce anything to a pulp, or get washed away on a raging red river of blood. Join the Brainwaves on their mission of mischievous mayhem.
Following in the same format as How Nearly Everything Was Invented, a key feature of this book is the six double gatefolds, each of which focuses on an important body system eating and digestion, breathing, blood circulation, defence, moving parts, and the brain, nerves, and senses. Each system is explored in an imaginative way for example, the digestive system is depicted as a disassembly line in a fanciful food factory.
In addition to the gatefolds there are special features on a comprehensive range of subjects, including communication, chromosomes and DNA, the function of skin, and modern techniques.
