Publisher's Description

Don't move a muscle--read all about them! Did you know that...

  • Without muscles you couldn't blink--or even breathe!

  • Nearly 700 muscles control your life.

  • Big or small, a muscle is made up of just one cell.

  • Exercise doesn't give you more muscles, but it strengthens the ones you have.

Discover how muscles make us move--and see what it really looks like under your skin.
