[An] enjoyably gross look at the human body. Hours of gruesome fun guaranteed. * i * ...it 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 *
