The Human Body Survival Guide



Your body is really GROSS — but also pretty AWESOME!

What’s the biggest organ in the human body? Does your hair continue to grow after you die? What does a healthy poo look like?

Don’t worry, The Human Body Survival Guide has the facts and advice you need to survive living in your body!

Our bodies, inside and out, can seem disgusting. There’s blood and guts, burps and farts. We secrete spit and snot and sweat. Everywhere we go, we’re shedding bits of ourselves. Skin. Hair. Nails. And our bodies are a breeding ground for germs, bacteria, fungus, lice and more.

The Human Body Survival Guide will take you on a weird and wonderful journey, and teach you just how amazing and complex your body is.

Hold on to your insides . . . Here we go!

About the author

George Ivanoff

George Ivanoff is a Melbourne author who’s written more than 100 books for kids and teens, including the interactive You Choose series, the RFDSadventures and the Other Worlds series.

As a child, George loved reading interactive books, where he got to make decisions about the direction of the story. He has had more fun plotting and writing the You Choose books than pretty much anything else. And writing the RFDSadventures has opened his eyes to the amazing work done by the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With Other Worlds George has ventured into the realms of science fiction and fantasy, two of his favourite genres, in order to tell stories about ordinary kids facing extraordinary circumstances.

George’s books and stories have been shortlisted for numerous awards and he is thrilled that You Choose: The Treasure of Dead Man’s Cove won the 2015 YABBA for Fiction for Younger Readers.

George drinks too much coffee, eats too much chocolate and watches too much Doctor Who. He has one wife, two children and an uncontrollable imagination.
