This jolly little book takes a light-hearted look at the human brain. A lot of questions children ask are explored: questions about what the brain is like, how it can be viewed and how headaches are caused. There is an interesting brain map showing which parts of the brain are responsible for particular functions like touching, talking, moving and so on.
Of course we would not expect an amusing, quirky picture book like this to cover everything to do with a complex organ like the brain, but there is an attempt to raise some deeper issues. Children are encouraged to think about dreams and nightmares, the workings of the imagination and there are useful messages about how what you eat and drink affects the brain’s health.
