About this item

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!

About the Author

Maris Wicks

Maris Wicks lives in sunny Somerville, Massachusetts. She has harnessed the power of her various biological systems to write, draw and color comics for Adhouse Books, Tugboat Press, Spongebob Comics, Image, Marvel and DC, as well as the New England Aquarium and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Wicks is the illustrator of New York Times Bestselling Primates, with Jim Ottaviani. When she is not drawing comics, Maris can be found prepping slides for her collection of vintage microscopes...or baking cookies. Coincidentally, she's especially proud of her digestive system. Human Body Theater is her latest graphic novel.
