Professor Astro Cat’s Human Body Odyssey

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Everyone's favourite cat-astronaut is back - and this time, it's personal! In this fifth in the fabulous Astro Cat series of highly-illustrated science books, our favourite catty scientist investigates the human body - from eyes to muscles, genetics to reproduction and the immune, endocrine and lymphatic systems.

Did you know, for instance, that bones are five times stronger than steel? Or that the point where neurons meet is called a synapse? Or, even more amazingly, that each person has over a hundred billion neurons in their brain, which would stretch from Earth to the moon if arranged in a straight line? Pretty amazing stuff.

As with the other books in the series, the Human Body Odyssey features sharp, 1950s-style design and bright colour on a thick matte paper that gives the book a very high quality feel. Despite its sophisticated design, the layout and information is supremely kid-friendly, and there's a great deal of fascinating info presented under clear headings.

Through every illustrated page, Professor Astro Cat and his chums conduct a jolly and exciting journey through the human body that's fascinating for all.
