The Amazing Human Body Detectives by Maggie Li (Pavilion Children's Books)

Maggie Li knows a thing or two about producing scintillating designs and engaging children with awesome science subjects. Her work as Art Director at Okido Magazine contributes to one of the best children's magazines on the planet.

Maggie has come up trumps with this latest book delving into the inner workings of the most amazing instrument you'll ever own - your body and in "The Amazing Human Body Detectives: Amazing Facts, Myths and Quirks of the Human Body" (phew, bit of a mouthful that!) you get a nifty little magnifying glass included on the cover to help you take a very close look at what's going on under your skin.

Each section tackles different physiological subjects with a ton of amazing facts and figures, and brilliant illustrations and diagrams to tell you what's going on when we eat, sleep, sweat and poo!

It's a fantastic idea to provide a useful analytical tool for your young detectives to use in several of the page spreads as you take a look at the tiniest cells and microbes all doing their work to ensure that you're a happy healthy human being.

A brilliant body book, perfect for school or home!

Charlotte's best bit: Fascinating facts about our skin from goosebumps to why we sweat!

Daddy's Favourite bit: An incredibly detailed and beautifully designed book and the inclusion of a magnifying glass is an absolutely genius idea!
