“Dhody proves that you’re never too young to learn about megacolons and articulated skeletons. Vive la curiosity!" - Caitlin Doughty, mortician and author of “Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?"
 


“Giants’ bones, and swallowed pins, and a dead lady made of soap–the Mütter Museum is a child's imagination run wild! Every exhibit Dhody writes about was once part of a person, and she brings their stories to life with heart, wit and respect. The reader will marvel, learn, and laugh, but never gawk." - Mary Roach, author of “Stiff"and “Gulp."


“A wonderful way to dip your young one's toe into the macabre-educational collection that is the Mütter Museum. It’s all here! Give your curious kiddo a book that will ‘disturbingly inform' their friends, and teach them some anatomy at the same time!" -  Mike Zohn, co-star of the reality show “Oddities,"and co-owner of Obscura Antiques & Oddities, NYC.


Join A.J., the Mütter Museum’s junior guide, on a tour of the world’s best-known medical museum. A.J. will take you on a fun and educational adventure through the Mütter’s amazing collection of unique medical specimens and objects. Accompanied by playful illustrations, this look at medical marvels and mysteries will enthrall and inform science lovers of all ages. A.J. has all of your questions covered; from the height of the Giant to the length of the Megacolon. Learn all about how the human body works (or doesn't!), and keep your eyes peeled for some of the museum's most famous see-through residents!
