Way We Work Bewertungen

"The powerful, illuminating images will ignite curiosity and inspire awe over the magnificent connections that make up the human body."--Booklist, boxed review

"The wonder that is David Macaulay is at it again . . . His text is irreverent . . . His drawing of a hand pulling the left eye out of its socket is just gross enough to engage young readers into a description of seeing . . . The work of this Caldecott medal winner and recipient of the McArthur grant is always a must-have in any library."--VOYA (5Q4P), highlighted review

"In this highly detailed encyclopedic volume of every part of our bodies, every system of the body is explained and illustrated in very kid-friendly lingo and art. Fascinating and well worth the price tag."--Winston Salem Journal

"To his many fans, David Macaulay is nothing less than America's Explainer-in-Chief"--the Providence Journal

"...teems with double-page spreads that blend scientific accuracy with Macaulay's trademark whimsy." -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"[takes] readers on a tour of ourselves--from the atoms that make us up to the brain that governs it all."--U.S. News & World Report

"You don't have to be a brain surgeon to understand this book, but it may very well inspire a few young people to become one someday."--PlanetEsme.com

" In this highly detailed encyclopedic volume of every part of our bodies, every system of the body is explained and illustrated in very kid-friendly lingo and art. Fascinating and well worth the price tag."--Winston Salem Journal

"The book is astonishingly comprehensive, beginning with the structure of a cell, traveling through various systems (e.g., respiratory, digestive, etc.) and ending with childbirth. Followers of Macaulay will expect some wit, and it is evident, not just in captions but in throwaways, as in an explanation of taste that acknowledges that smell is "the senior partner . . . motivated teens will feel they've gone to premed heaven."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In this comprehensive and entertaining resource, best-selling author David Macaulay illuminates the mysteries of the human body as only he could."--Book Page
