Grab your 3× magnifying glass and go on a gross-out journey through the ins and outs of anatomy with Up Close and Incredible: Human Body.

In this scientific search-and-find adventure, you’ll join a team of tiny scientists, nurses and doctors as they explore a diverse range of bodies inside and out, from the tips of your toes to the snot in your nose. You’ll learn along the way how every part of your body does its job to keep you happy and healthy.

But it's not all a biology lesson: look closely through the magnifying glass, and you'll find scared scientists fleeing from a tastebud-tingling chili pepper, an ear-canal waterslide, and even a theater inside an eyeball! Your trusty magnifying glass will reveal new gags again and again among the scrapes, mishaps and wacky experiments of the miniature scientists, where every tiny detail tells a story, and every story reveals more incredible facts about the human body.

The larger-than-life scenes you'll explore include the brain, heart, lungs, digestive system, kidneys and bladderreproductive system, skeleton, nerves and muscles, as well as the sensory organs and skin. With 14 scenes and 10 things to spot on each one, plus extra detail hidden on every page, Up Close and Incredible: Human Body has literally hundreds of facts and jokes to discover. A map of the human body at the back puts everything into context, while a gallery of scientists celebrates the famous faces who discovered many of the facts in the book.

This thrilling scientific journey of a book will have you gasping and laughing as you discover new shocking and hilarious facts about the body you’re in. The zany drawings are packed full of comedic details to spot, keeping your read fresh each time. So, what are you waiting for? Your magnified adventure into human anatomy awaits!

This is a delightfully presented delve into the human body. Perfect for children to get excited about. The art work matches the text, coming together to encourage wonder at the human body’s systems. Each has a couple of pages, with an overview of function, and then facts to explain in greater depth how it functions. Well presented. A book that has been well thought out. This should be in all children’s bookshelves, and would be perfect for school and public libraries. Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group - Wide Eyed Editions and NetGalley for the ARC. The views expressed are all mine, freely given.

What a great informative and interactive exploration of the human body, perfect for engaging children in discussion about their bodies and helping them to learn how it works! It was wonderful and colourful too with easy to understand illustrations and text!

Super informational but also had great and fun illustrations. Reminded me a lot of the magic school bus show.

This book has such a fun concept with a pop out magnifying glass that can be used to find little hidden pictures within the illustrations - a little like Where's Wally but teaching information in a novel way. Information given was clear and the illustrations themselves are detailed and fun.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and Netgalley for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

I’m 28, why did this book teach ME things? The illustrations absolutely kick ass. They’re fantastic, kid friendly, easy to understand and 100% fact based. This is not a dumbed down version of an anatomy book speaking down at kids like they’re idiots. It respects their questions and curiosity. Fantastic.
