Random Body Parts: Gross Anatomy Riddles in Verse

Written by Leslie Bulion and Illustrated by Mike Lowery

Witty and nimble verse about body parts pairs with whimsical drawings in this informative, fun science poetry collection. Each poem that follows poses a puzzle in verse (with a sly wink and a nod to Shakespeare) and provides hints for uncovering the body part in question. Sidebars further educate readers about the anatomical subject in question, while appended notes offer a crash course on poetic form and a few facts about the Shakespearean works that inspired the verses. A glossary for science terms is included in the back matter. Creative nonfiction companion to anatomy study at any grade level.
