Description
"From the kidnapping of Einstein's brain to the horrifying end of Louis XIV's heart, the mysteries surrounding some of history's most famous body parts range from medical to macabre. Carlyn Beccia explores the misadventures of noteworthy body parts through history and uses them as springboards for exploring topics such as forensics, DNA testing, brain science, organ donation, and cloning. The engaging, conversational tone of the text, the wonderfully creepy subject matter, and the delightfully detailed art are sure to capture even the most reluctant readers. The famous people and their body parts include: Galileo Galilei / Fingers Louis XIV / Heart George Washington / Teeth Franz Hayden / Head Beethoven / Hair Abraham Lincoln / Body Cheng and Eng Bunker / Liver Phineas Gage / Skull John Wilkes Booth / Neck vertebrae Vincent Van Gogh / Ear Sarah Bernhardt / Leg Mata Hari / Head Albert Einstein / Brain Elvis Presley / Wart Thomas Edison / Last Breath"--,Provided by publisher.
Target Audience
