Grab your 3× magnifying glass and go on a gross-out journey through the ins and outs of anatomy with Up Close and Incredible: Human Body.

In this scientific search-and-find adventure, you’ll join a team of tiny scientists, nurses and doctors as they explore a diverse range of bodies inside and out, from the tips of your toes to the snot in your nose. You’ll learn along the way how every part of your body does its job to keep you happy and healthy.

But it's not all a biology lesson: look closely through the magnifying glass, and you'll find scared scientists fleeing from a tastebud-tingling chili pepper, an ear-canal waterslide, and even a theater inside an eyeball! Your trusty magnifying glass will reveal new gags again and again among the scrapes, mishaps and wacky experiments of the miniature scientists, where every tiny detail tells a story, and every story reveals more incredible facts about the human body.

The larger-than-life scenes you'll explore include the brain, heart, lungs, digestive system, kidneys and bladder, reproductive system, skeleton, nerves and muscles, as well as the sensory organs and skin. With 14 scenes and 10 things to spot on each one, plus extra detail hidden on every page, Up Close and Incredible: Human Body has literally hundreds of facts and jokes to discover.
