You’ll lose it for this fully-illustrated, gross-out nonfiction about the dismembered adventures of history's most famous body parts.


From the kidnapping of Einstein's brain to the horrifying end of Louis XIV's heart, the mysteries surrounding some of history's most famous body parts range from medical to macabre.


Carlyn Beccia explores the misadventures of noteworthy body parts through history and springboards to exploring STEM topics such as forensics, DNA testing, brain science, organ donation, and cloning.

The engaging tone, wonderfully creepy subject matter, and delightfully detailed art are sure to capture even the most reluctant readers and fans of Georgia Bragg's How They Croaked and How They Choked.

The famous people and their body parts include: Galileo Galilei (fingers), George Washington (teeth), Beethoven (hair), Vincent Van Gogh (ear), Albert Einstein (brain), Elvis Presley (wart), and many more!
