ORDER: HARDCOVER

Follow the adventures of two tiny explorers on their mission to explore and map every corner of an unknown territory--the human body. The chosen subject: Stephen Biesty; gender male; profession artist.

Using special equipment, the "Extraordinary Exploration Squad" investigates every nook and cranny of Stephen's body to find out how it work sand what happens if it doesn't. Along the way they meet the teams of the body, workers who maintain and repair Stephen's body, explaining exactly what they must do to keep Stephen going. Showered by bile, squashed in a muscle as it contracts, the explorers are catapulted from one close call to another until they reach the end of their adventure and "escape" from Stephen's body in a most unusual way!

Stephen Biesty's Incredible Body features the brilliantly detailed illustration of Stephen Biesty, including a stunning, giant gatefold of "exploded" artwork. Couple with Richard Platt's well researched, witty and stimulating text readers are lead through a fascinating world that lies within each of us.

Equally appealing to adults and children. This book will fascinate, amaze, and entertain every reader.
