Title: A Zombie’s Guide to the Human Body: Tasty Tidbits from Head to Toe

Author: Scholastic

Publisher: Scholastic Reference        Year: 2010

ISBN -13: 978-0545249799

Age: 8 and up

Genre: Non-Fiction

Subjects / Themes: Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, Science & Nature

Plot Summary:

This book is a basic guide to understanding the human body but with a zombie twist! From head to toe, the human body is explored and explained with a funny combination of illustrated images and full-colored photographs of zombies. Not only will you learn facts such as what happens to your dinner after you eat and how many bones there are, but also interesting zombie facts like “the jellylike marrow (of the bones) is good on toast!”

My take:

This book is not only educational but hilariously funny!  I see students at lunchtime huddled around the book and have to remind them to keep their voices down as they enjoy the zombie humor. Full of bright colors, high quality graphics and typical zombie humor this book is a great resource. Every page contains basic science about the human body – from bones and brains muscles and reflexes – sure to both entertain and educate your kids

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars … I don’t think anyone is too old to take a refresher course in Human Anatomy 101 with a zombie professor!
