Under the watchful eye of Dr Walker, peel the flaps back to reveal the inner workings of the human body, from bone and muscle, to the brain, eyes, heart, lungs and everything in-between. Victorian-inspired illustrations meet with medical notes and sketches to give a complete in-depth exploration of how the human body works. Word count including flaps: approx 5,000
