Put on your wellies and hard hat for an unforgettable tour of the human body factory!

An entertaining and informative exploration of the human body, from the big boss sending out orders in the brain to waste being sorted and delivered out of the body.

The Human Body Factory splits the human body into easy sections, with each ‘department' introduced by the busy workers who keep everything running smoothly. The ingenious artworks are packed with humorous details, all backed up with Dan Green's fascinating facts and accessible text describing and explaining the body's processes. Whether it's toxic signs and workers wearing biohazard suits in the large intestine, lab workers in dinghies mixing gastric juices in the stomach with a giant whisk, or the lungs depicted as a gym, you'll find plenty to amaze and amuse in this comprehensive, fact-filled guide to the human body.
