"A fascinating, fact-filled tour of the digestive system. . . . Settel remarkably manages to maintain the texts rhyme structure without sacrificing scientific detail or vocabulary (later emphasized with a detailed glossary). She also doesnt shy away from tackling the grosser aspects of digestion (diarrhea, vomiting, and farting all find their place). Björkmans pen, ink, and watercolor scenes break up the text and counterbalance the books advanced content with exaggerated humor. A one-stop rhyming shop for all things digestion."
"There's plenty of attention to chemical interactions and anatomical detail in these poems for all that they are cast in iambic couplets. . . . Björkman's cartoons, all bright colors and loose, fluid lines, add a diversely hued cast of young folk exuberantly chowing down, throwing up, looking amazed or grossed out, and posing as models for labeled internal views. . . . What's not to love?"
