The Science of Oceans
This gruesome guide to skin, the largest organ in the human body, uses fact-packed, easy-to-read text and humorous illustrations to explore everything from how skin protects us to how it can itch and irritate us, and delves into why skin is such a integral part of our identity. Each spread has multiple entry points, including an introductory paragraph, illustrations and side panels such as Fascinating Facts, Helpful Hint, Can You Believe It?, and Disgusting Data, which provide additional information and handy advice.
