This year :01 (“First Second”), an imprint of Macmillan, is celebrating ten years of publishing fantastic graphic novels for kids and teens. To help them celebrating, we’re spotlighting one fantastic :01 title each month through the rest of 2016. Today’s featured title is:
Welcome to the Human Body Theater, where your master of ceremonies is going to lead you through a theatrical revue of each and every biological system of the human body! Starting out as a skeleton, the MC puts on a new layer of her costume (her body) with each “act.” By turns goofy and intensely informative, the Human Body Theater is always accessible and always entertaining.
Maris Wicks is a biology nerd, and by the time you’ve read this book, you will be too! Harnessing her passion for science (and her background as a science educator for elementary and middle-school students), she has created a comics-format introduction to the human body that will make an expert of any reader — young or old!
