From the Publisher
Take a free-form trip though the human body with these humorous riddle poems.

In these pages you will discover the astonishing answers to these questions --and many more! Put your cerebral cortex to work. Follow the anatomical, poetic, and visual clues to make a guess, then read the science notes to check your powers of riddle reasoning. You'll even find hints from the greatest poet of them all --William Shakespeare!
