Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Welcome to the Human Body Theater, where your master of ceremonies is going to lead you through a theatrical revue of each and every biological system of the human body! Starting out as a skeleton, the MC puts on a new layer of her costume (her body) with each "act." By turns goofy and intensely informative, the Human Body Theater is always accessible and always entertaining. Maris Wicks is a biology nerd, and by the time you've read this book, you will be too! Harnessing her passion for science (and her background as a science educator for elementary and middle-school students), she has created a comics-format introduction to the human body that will make an expert of any reader - young or old!
Review Quote*Primates : "An accessible introduction to Goodall's, Fossey's and Galdikas' lives and work." - Kirkus Reviews "A graphic format admirably propels this lightly fictionalized group biography." - The Horn Book
Biographical NoteMaris Wicks lives with fellow human Joe Quinones and their cat, Biggs, in Somerville, Massachusetts. She has harnessed the power of her various biological systems to draw comics for Adhouse Books, Tugboat Press, and Spongebob Comics, and written stories for Image and DC Comics. Wicks is the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Primates, with Jim Ottaviani. When she's not making comics, Wicks works as a program educator at the New England Aquarium. She's especially proud of her pulmonary system.
