Follow your food on its gooey, chewy, rumble, plop journey through your body! This irreverent pop-up guide is a fascinatingly fun read for any child. It's a fantastic companion for anyone studying science at primary school level - where children are taught about parts of the body, how we grow, why humans need food, and the benefits of a healthy balanced diet. This book is stuffed with scrumptious illustrations, over 30 mouth-watering pop-ups and easy-to-digest text. Children will especially love the cover, complete with a touch n' feel slimy tongue - ew!
