Bleeurrgh! Blood, bones, brains and body bits. A bone-chilling book of bodies to make you squeal! Peek inside to discover all the squishy secrets of your body – especially the nasty and disgusting bits your teacher was too squeamish to explain! That’s why they call this HORRIBLE science! Find out what happens when a boil bursts. See which mini-beasts live inside your eyelashes. Find out where your dinner goes after you eat it. And – aaaaargggh! – discover why corpses need haircuts even after they’re dead. Warning! It’s NOT for the nervous!
