The Blood-Hungry Spleen and Other Poems About Our Parts

author: Allan Wolf
illustrator: Greg Clarke

Have you ever wondered what some of your body parts do? How many times a year your heart beats? How big your small intestines are? Which of your muscles looks most like a slug? Certain to appeal to elementary-school children, these thirty-four humorous, anatomically accurate poems explore the workings of our bodies with great verve and enthusiasm and plenty of outrageous illustrations.

"Makes a terrific and enriching addition to any life-science course and a charming gateway into deeper discussions of the body." School Library Journal
