Your Gurgling Guts takes you on a trip round the big chemical factory that is your intestine, from the moment you chew a mouthful of food to the waste disposal area right at the end. It’s a long journey too, as the surface of your intestine has to absorb so many food molecules it could cover an entire badminton court! Find out what friendly bacteria do, how the liver performs 500 tasks at once, how kidneys stop your body being poisoned, and lots more.

• Detailed cutaways reveal the body’s systems at work.
• Stickmen add humour and explain functions and what the major organs do.
• Source books to tie in with schoolwork.
