Do you ever think about your body and how it all works? Like really properly think about it?
The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well... pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your maths teacher's is even weirder.
This book is going to tell you what's actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like:
Are bogeys safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its nutritional value. (Yes, they're safe. Chew away!)
And . . .
How much of your life will you spend on the toilet? About a year - so bring a good book. (I recommend this one.)
So sit back, relax, put on some rubber gloves, and let a doctor take you on a poo- and puke-filled tour of your insides. Welcome to Kay's Anatomy*.
*a fancy word for your body. See, you're learning already.
The full cast includes: Andy Nyman, Joe Wilkinson, Rose Matafeo, Mark Gatiss, Dan Tetsell, Sandi Toksvig, Desiree Burch, Lolly Adefope, Mike Wozniak, Jan Ravens, Lucy Montgomery, Tom Allen, Henry Paker and Reece Shearsmith.

Scientists and doctors tried many unorthodox and gruesome practices before stumbling upon the revolutionary treatments and causes for illness that we know today, many of which Adam Kay talks about in his new book Kay’s Marvellous Medicine. Here are five of them.
From the most unbelievable factual realities to science-inspired adventures, wannabe scientists will love getting stuck into this book pile. There's even a book to help you concoct the most marvellous of experiments!
If you're anything like us, you're probably bursting with questions about the human body! It is a fascinating (and gruesome) place after all. Luckily, former doctor Adam Kay has answered a myriad of questions in his guide Kay's Anatomy.
