Children's Literature
Kids will be attracted to this book about digestion because of the title. And what a great introduction¾the story of Michael Lotito eating a bicycle. Not to worry, it took him 15 days and it had been reduced to metal filings. Or what about Jay Gwaltney, who spent 89 hours eating an eleven-foot birch tree? Short segments examine a variety of topics relating to digestion and how the human body processes food. The right kinds of food to eat for a healthy body, brain food, protein and quantities of food are explained, all with a twist to interest kids. Did you know some people crave and eat laundry starch? Or that the man with the world's largest waist weighed 1197 pounds? Numerous bulleted facts are interspersed among the short text segments. For example, during the first two days of life, a particular variety of moth larva can eat 86,000 times its birth weight in food; and humans have 16 million smell sensors, while a rabbit has 100 million. This material is presented in manageable chunks with entertaining illustrations. Part of the "Mysterious You" series. 2001, Kids Can Press, $14.95 and $6.95. Ages 9 to 14. Reviewer: Kristin Harris
