There is an amazing amount of information packed into every page. . . Fascinating information on the haw, or third eyelid that many animals have just below their outer lids. Did you know the haw opens and closes sideways instead of up and down, and that it’s transparent? There is a photograph of a man popping his eyeballs that made me yell out "EWWW!". . . The information is unique and very up-to-date."

“The Gross and Goofy Body' [series of books] enlivens physiology for kids, offering humorous yet scientific surveys of body functions in just under 50 pages each. Kids in grades 2-4 will find [these books] appealing and fun. Each blends photos with fun cartoons and photos of kids, along with plenty of basic physiology.”
