Kay's Anatomy Summary


Kay's Anatomy: A Complete (and Completely Disgusting) Guide to the Human Body by Adam Kay

THE RECORD-BREAKING NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER FROM THE UK'S BESTSELLING NON-FICTION AUTHOR

Do you ever think about your body and how it all works?

Like really properly think about it? The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well . . . pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your maths teacher's is even weirder.

This book is going to tell you what's actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like:

Are bogeys safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its nutritional value. (Yes, they're safe. Chew away!)

And how much of your life will you spend on the toilet? About a year - so bring a good book. (I recommend this one.)

So sit back, relax, put on some rubber gloves, and let a doctor take you on a poo (and puke) filled tour of your insides. Welcome to Kay's Anatomy*.

*a fancy word for your body. See, you're learning already.

Covers key stage 2 / 3 human biology syllabus (in a slightly repulsive way).

Kay's Anatomy Reviews


As brilliant, and revolting, as the human body it celebrates. * i *
...it is like listening to a teacher who makes pupils fall about * The Sunday Times *
Kay's Anatomy is totally brilliant - it's ultra child-friendly and chatty, and any young reader will learn a great deal about the body as they chuckle through each chapter. * Jacqueline Wilson *
Perfect for days of home-schooling! * South Wales Echo *
It's fun and informative and just the sort of book I would've loved as a child. And I loved the True or Poo sections! * Malorie Blackman *
If only this funny and informative book had been around when I was too embarrassed to teach my kids about bodily functions * David Baddiel *
Hilarious and fascinating! I wish Adam had been my biology teacher * Konnie Huq *
Packed with anatomical facts - and very funny - this exciting book is bound to inspire the next generation of medics * Sunday Express *

This is brilliant. I'm not jealous that I didn't write it at all. No, not one little bit.

* Dr Ranj Singh *
Adam Kay helped deliver my son, and ten years later he's just politely taught him the process that led to it. I can't help but feel that Adam is doing all my work for me * Danny Wallace *

Much funnier and more informative and more gross than Gray's Anatomy... I highly recommend for anyone

* Dr Xand van Tulleken *
Hugely entertaining and hugely informative * LoveReading4Kids *
Absolutely packed with facts... Entertaining and highly informative * Daily Mail *

About Adam Kay


Adam Kay is a multi-award-winning writer, comedian and former doctor. His first book, an undergraduate textbook called Rapid Obstetrics and Gynaecology didn't do particularly well, but his next two did rather better. This is Going to Hurt has sold over two million copies, been translated into 37 languages, and is the bestselling narrative nonfiction title of the decade, spending over a year at number one in the Sunday Times bestseller chart. It is soon to be a major BBC comedy-drama. His follow-up, Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas, sold over 500,000 copies in the last three months of 2019, and saw him become the first author to have simultaneous Sunday Times number ones for both hardback and paperback nonfiction titles.
