THE RECORD-BREAKING NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER FROM THE UK'S BESTSELLING NON-FICTION AUTHOR.
Discover all the weird and wonderful things that go on inside your body with Adam Kay. Covers key stage 2 / 3 human biology syllabus (in a slightly repulsive way).
'Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher' - Konnie Huq
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.

...it is like listening to a teacher who makes pupils fall about
Kay's Anatomy is totally brilliant - it's ultra child-friendly and chatty, and any young reader will learn a great deal about the body as they chuckle through each chapter.
Perfect for days of home-schooling!
It's fun and informative and just the sort of book I would've loved as a child. And I loved the True or Poo sections!
If only this funny and informative book had been around when I was too embarrassed to teach my kids about bodily functions
Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher
Packed with anatomical facts - and very funny - this exciting book is bound to inspire the next generation of medics
This is brilliant. I'm not jealous that I didn't write it at all. No, not one little bit.
Much funnier and more informative and more gross than Gray's Anatomy... I highly recommend for anyone
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.
