Praise

Praise for The Human Body:

“The human body, for all of its amazing traits, is capable of breaking down, and this informative book covers both historical and modern innovations that help repair and strengthen it. . . the open page design and ample full-color photos and historical diagrams will easily draw in middle-grade readers, especially those looking for a more macabre look at history and science.” —Booklist

“An effective approach, one that follows developments in medical innovation across the centuries. . . Numerous photographs and historical illustrations of current and past medical devices—including the gruesome tools once used for surgery and tooth extraction—provide fascinating detail and context.” —The Horn Book
