Description

Author: Adam Kay | Illustrator: Henry Paker Age: 8-11 | English 


The brand-new, hilarious book from bestselling, record-breaking author Adam Kay.

The olden days were pretty fun if you liked wearing chainmail or chopping people's heads off but there was one TINY LITTLE problem back then . . . doctors didn't have the slightest clue about how our bodies worked.

It's time to find out why Ancient Egyptians thought the brain was just a useless load of old stuffing that might as well be chucked in the bin, why teachers forced their pupils to smoke cigarettes, why hairdressers would cut off their customers' legs, and why people used to get paid for farting. (Unfortunately that's no longer a thing - sorry.)

You'll get answers to questions like:
Why did patients gargle with wee?
How did a doctor save people's lives using a washing machine, a can of beans and some old sausages?
What was the great stink? (No, it's not what doctors call your bum.)

If you're sure you're ready, then pop a peg on your nose (there was a lot of stinky pus back then), pull on your wellies (there was a lot of poo there too), wash your hands (because they certainly didn't) and explore this gross and gruesome history of the human body!

Praise for Kay's Anatomy:
'An enjoyably gross look at the human body. Hours of gruesome fun guaranteed' i
'Like listening to a teacher who makes pupils fall about' Sunday Times
'Totally brilliant!' Jacqueline Wilson
'Fun and informative' Malorie Blackman
'Very funny - this exciting book is bound to inspire the next generation of medics' Sunday Express
