This book is very much like the TV program and explains in depth how your body works and habits and uses your body can do.
i loved it as much as the television version and Dr Chris and Xand still are humerus and mess around.

Information books are my favourite, and I dont have one just about the body so I was excited to read it. it has a contents page, so you can skip to bits you are more interested in. I liked all the facts, it was very interesting and I learnt a lot of new things. The pictures thatbwent with the information were great. I liked that throughout the book there were things I could do, like dot to dot, drawing, quizzes etc. There was lots of fun facts, abd I liked that some pages told you what to do in certain situations, such as if you get a burn, knock a tooth out etc. I most enjoyed the sections about the brain and the bones. This is a book I will read numerous time, and wouldnt get bored of. Its great for girls and boys. I would definately recommend it and give it 10/10

We won this yesterday and it arrived this morning! Fantastic!
It is jam-packed with information and many colourful pictures and diagrams to support the writing. The text is presented Ina variety of ways to make it interesting throughout. There is quite a lot of 'grossness' (as Leo and Caitlin said) which they loved!
There are also lots of interactive puzzles throughout the book to engage the reader, as well as practical experiments to do at home.
This book is fantastic and would make a great present.
My children enjoyed it because they know Chris and Xand from TV and love them so this made it even more appealing.

This book is awesome! I love it!
I want to be a nurse when I grow up and this book has really given me an insight into the human body, aren't our bodies amazing?
I particularly enjoyed learning about the changes as we grow into teenagers, especially as we've just learnt about some of them in school. And I know my time to change is soon now that I'm 11.
The book is full of so many facts, I didn't realise there was so much to learn. I will certainly be enjoying this book for a long time.

This book definitely deserves 5 stars! My daughter seems to be pleased with the book although she said that there are lots of creepy and gross pictures:) It's writtten in a really engaging style and it encourages children to want to learn more. There are plenty of facts about human body and the pictures help to visualize it.
As we know children love to ask questions and sometimes it's difficult to find the asnwers in your head so now you can use this book as the reference. The level of detail on each page is excellent! It is very interactive and has so much information. It's displayed in such a fun way that children keep reading it and can't stop.
This book is great and will help you to introduce the human body systems to your child (and I have to admit that I've learnt a lot myself!)
It's a beautifully published hardback so it may be a great present for every child!

I love this book, I've been reading it loads since it arrived and it has so much information in it.  There are lots of gross pages like sick, blood, maggots but so many facts to learn.
I love doing the DO try this at home activities and all of the fun things it suggests.

I've still got a bit more to read but I've learnt tonnes from reading the HuManual.  It's got great pictures and easy to understand facts.  I love operation ouch too so this book is perfect for me.

What an amazing book! My son loves Science and this book is full of it. Exciting and interesting facts, incredible diagrams and whit. The way the body is portrayed is interesting, thought provoking and amusing (some gross stuff, which went down well). We all learnt things and we all couldn't wait till bedtime to pick up this book. A resounding 5. Highly recommended.

 The book gives you enough information to keep the kids interested but is not too grafic or complicated to understand. It is bright and colourful and it helps that my daughter knew the 2 doctors writing the book from the tv programme.
Scarlett started to read the book straight away and was asking questions
