What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From Stacy McAnulty, author of the funny STEM picture book Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years and Our Universe series, comes the beginning of an exciting new picture book series focused on the science of the body. Brains. 78% water, 100% delicious. A zombie chef who has sworn off eating brains salivates over this super powerful organ in this funny and fact-filled picture book. From learning about how the brain processes messages from our five senses, to learning why wrinkly human brains are so much more powerful than smooth mouse brains, this is a hilarious introduction to the organ that does it all. Rich with kid-friendly facts and beautifully brought to life by Matthew Rivera, this is a charming and irresistible picture book.
