Reviews (cont'd)
“Despite its irreverent moniker, the Gross and Goofy Body series offers detailed science facts in a fashion approachable enough to make it a welcome supplement to school textbooks. Each volume takes on a part or function of the body and then goes through the paces of description, metaphor, examples, data, and, most extensively, comparison to our animal counterparts. ... the layout is fresh, clean, and colorful, sidebars keep things conversational, and the back matter is solid.”
