7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Dr. H. Payne on 19 Nov. 2007
Format: Hardcover
What a bizarre book. The title, for all its incomprehensibility, really does the book justice.

The tone of the book is set by the front cover which has a realistic looking and feeling stretchy tongue. Each of the subsequent double pages (note that there are only 5 double spreads/10 pages in the book) has a wealth of visual and interactive detail. There are numerous flaps to lift, books within books, pop-ups, things to pull or twist. The pages are bright and the illustrations cheery and great for children.

The content is clever. It presents accurate facts about the mouth (types and locations of tastebuds), oesophagus, stomach and intestines. The biology and function of each area is presented accessibly. The last double page has some predictable toilet humour which appeals to all children.

I would imagine that this book is targeted at around the 7-9 year old age bracket for independent reading. However, I'll be giving a copy to my 4 year-old for Christmas as he will adore the tongue and bits to lift. He may even learn some simple biology as I read and/or paraphrase some sections for him.

My daughter loves this book, she's four, but it would be suitable for an older child. The illustrations are bright and witty with loads of flaps which pull out to reaveal the workings of the body. See food pass from mouth to toilet with all parts covered in an eductional, but humourous fashion.

Format: Hardcover
This has got to be my 5 year old's most favourite book of all times. There is so much to learn in this book and every time we read it we discover yet another flap and another piece of useful information or a fun fact. Its fantastic for this age group as they find most of the "ewww" stuff very funny and interesting. I learned some new things reading it as well!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mum of 3 and year 2 teacher on 5 April 2009
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book to use with my year 2 class during a digestion lesson. It has become a firm class favourite especially as the tongue feels real [yuck!] and the last page features the boy sitting on the toilet. Although there are many flaps it is well made and with many interesting facts. Worth every penny!

Format: Hardcover
This was my little boys favourite when he was early infant-school age, and makes a great birthday present for any 5 year old. It is graphically all about where your food goes once you've eaten it, complete with pop up toilets and buckets of sick. Really gross, hence it's popularity with the small boys!

By Dr. Peter Davies TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Nov. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book. A friend of mine bought it for my daughter. It is a superb introduction to the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus. It explains what goes in and what comes out. Medically accurate. Beautifully modelled. Goes fully into the gooey bits. My daughter loves it. There's actually enough information in the book to go quite a long way in high school biology.

This is a beautifully made and designed pop up book, that it is fun to play with and fun to read. You cannot help but learn along the way.

Recommended for children between ages 4 and 8.
