Kay's Anatomy

release date: Jul 26, 2022
Kay's Anatomy
This complete (and completely gross) guide to the human body is the hilarious debut nonfiction children''s book from world-wide multi-million bestselling author and former doctor Adam Kay! Do you ever think about your body and how it works? Like really, really think about it? The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well...pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your math 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 boogers 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.) Sit back, relax, put on some rubber gloves, and let a doctor take you on (slightly repulsive) tour of your insides. Welcome to Kay''s Anatomy*. *A fancy word for your body. See, you''re learning already.

Kay's Marvellous Medicine

release date: Sep 30, 2021
Kay's Marvellous Medicine
''Read this book and you''re virtually a qualified doctor! Educational and entertaining - it should be on the national curriculum!''- Harry Hill ''Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher'' - Konnie Huq The brand-new, hilarious book from bestselling, record-breaking author Adam Kay. The olden days were pretty fun if you liked wearing chainmail or chopping people''s heads off but there was one TINY LITTLE problem back then . . . doctors didn''t have the slightest clue about how our bodies worked. It''s time to find out why Ancient Egyptians thought the brain was just a useless load of old stuffing that might as well be chucked in the bin, why teachers forced their pupils to smoke cigarettes, why hairdressers would cut off their customers'' legs, and why people used to get paid for farting. (Unfortunately that''s no longer a thing - sorry.) You''ll get answers to questions like: Why did patients gargle with wee? How did a doctor save people''s lives using a washing machine, a can of beans and some old sausages? What was the great stink? (No, it''s not what doctors call your bum.) If you''re sure you''re ready, then pop a peg on your nose (there was a lot of stinky pus back then), pull on your wellies (there was a lot of poo there too), wash your hands (because they certainly didn''t) and explore this gross and gruesome history of the human body! Praise for Kay''s Anatomy: ''An enjoyably gross look at the human body. Hours of gruesome fun guaranteed'' i ''Like listening to a teacher who makes pupils fall about'' Sunday Times ''Totally brilliant!'' Jacqueline Wilson ''Fun and informative'' Malorie Blackman ''Very funny - this exciting book is bound to inspire the next generation of medics'' Sunday Express
