How long will it take?


01 September 2021
The record-breaking, bestselling hilarious first children's book from multi-million bestselling author Adam Kay, illustrated throughout by comedian Henry Paker. Now in paperback.

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.

Reviews for Kay's Anatomy: A Complete (and Completely Disgusting) Guide to the Human Body

[An] enjoyably gross look at the human body. Hours of gruesome fun guaranteed. * i * is like listening to a teacher who makes pupils fall about * The Sunday Times * 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. * Jacqueline Wilson * Perfect for days of home-schooling! * South Wales Echo * 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! * Malorie Blackman * If only this funny and informative book had been around when I was too embarrassed to teach my kids about bodily functions * David Baddiel * Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher * Konnie Huq * Packed with anatomical facts - and very funny - this exciting book is bound to inspire the next generation of medics * Sunday Express * This is brilliant. I'm not jealous that I didn't write it at all. No, not one little bit. * Dr Ranj Singh * Much funnier and more informative and more gross than Gray's Anatomy... I highly recommend for anyone * Dr Xand van Tulleken *
