Where to buy it


Welcome to the weirdest museum you’ll ever explore—the one inside your body.

From goosebumps and hiccups to exploding organs and monkey muscles, each room in the museum shows us that these parts have stories to tell us about our past. By the time we make it to the gift shop, we’ll understand that evolution is not only messy and imperfect, but also ongoing.

About the authors

Rachel Poliquin écrit surtout sur les animaux. Elle aime particulièrement célébrer les héros inattendus, ceux qui sont bossus, modestes et tranquillement extraordinaires. Elle est l’autrice des séries Superpower Field Guide et Polite Predators, ainsi que de The Strangest Thing in the Sea. Elle vit à Vancouver, en Colombie-Britannique, avec son mari et ses trois enfants.
