Product description

Book Description

The first children's book from multi-million bestselling author Adam Kay

About the Author

Adam Kay is a multi-award-winning writer, comedian and former doctor. His first book, an undergraduate textbook called Rapid Obstetrics and Gynaecology didn't do particularly well, but his next two did rather better. This is Going to Hurt has sold over two million copies, been translated into 37 languages, and is the bestselling narrative nonfiction title of the decade, spending over a year at number one in the Sunday Times bestseller chart. It is soon to be a major BBC comedy-drama. His follow-up, Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas, sold over 500,000 copies in the last three months of 2019, and saw him become the first author to have simultaneous Sunday Times number ones for both hardback and paperback nonfiction titles.

Warning! Contains much talk of poo, farts and vomit!
I have a 7 year old, and now that I have finished reading Kay's Anatomy, I will let her have it.
I learned a lot, and I am 38.

For example I can remember without even looking that the hippocampus is the memory section of the brain. This is because of Henry Paker's brilliant illustration of a hippo going camping. I also like how the large intestine is always depicted as wearing a beret.

Mr Kay writes so well and where there are more difficult topics such as eating disorders or grief, he approaches them sensitively and encourages children to get help if are struggling.

So buy this book for your kids. Buy it for yourself. Buy it for your Granny.
