This book provides comprehensible answers to children's and young adult's questions about their bodies and the development of personality. Using simple but vivid images, Marianne Koch describes how organs work, why we contract diseases, how antibodies fight viruses and how drops and pills "know" where to do the healing.
Puberty, love and sex are important topics, too, corresponding to the interests of the age group the book addresses. Eleven-year-old Julia, ten-year-old Benny and their friends are Koch's partners in the often amusing dialogues she has had with children in her "real-life" work as a doctor. Accompanying her on an exciting inner journey, the children receive a "first-hand" impression of the marvellous machinery of the human body.
