About the Book

Join Little House of Science on an incredible, behind-the-scenes tour of the human body. Discover where bodies come from, how they grow, their different parts and how they work.

Brilliant Bodies Inside and Out dives deep into the inner workings of the body. From what goes on inside the stomach and the mechanics of the eye, to the different layers of the skin and what’s inside the blood, this is the ultimate guide to the human body.

Six chapters cover the body’s key systems, with easy-to-follow illustrations and diagrams accompanying each page. Each chapter also includes fun experiments to try at home, such as food-tasting and how to make a model lung.

Each spread features fascinating comparisons with the animal kingdom. For example, did you know that the Hydra, a tiny animal that lives in water, has around 1,000 neurons, whereas humans have 86 billion? Scientists are amazed by its ability to survive with such a simple nervous system.

The final chapter in the book is all about amazing animal bodies. From an elephant’s incredible sense of smell to the super sight of a bald eagle, readers can enjoy learning about the fascinating differences, and similarities, between their bodies and those of the animal kingdom. On the final page, readers are invited into The Animal Hall of Fame, which showcases record-breaking beasts, including the longest-living, strongest and tallest animals, alongside their human counterparts.
