Caramel reviews Survive! Inside the Human Body: The Digestive System by Hyun-Dong Han

A few weeks ago, as the book bunny household was just finishing up watching the (surprisingly violent but also extremely engaging) manga series Cells At Work, we came across a series of graphic novels set inside the human body. Of course both little bunnies read through the books in the blink of an eye. Today Marshmallow interviews Caramel about the first book in the series: Survive: The Digestive System, illustrated by Hyun-Dong Han.

Marshmallow: So, Caramel, what do you want to tell us about this book?

Caramel: This book is a book that can teach a lot. 

M: What is something you learned?

C: I learned that the esophagus is a hole that goes down to your stomach.  

M: What happens in the book?

C: It’s about a girl named Phoebe, and then there is this Doctor Brain. Doctor Brain’s a medical person who’s a mad scientist too. He invents this machine that makes things smaller, and then accidentally, Geo and Doctor Brain get swallowed by Phoebe.

M: Who is Geo?

C: Phoebe’s friend. 

M: Who is the other character on the cover?

C: That is Kay, the assistant of Doctor Brain, and Geo and Phoebe’s friend. 

M: What are Geo and Doctor Brain trying to do?

C: They are trying to get out of Phoebe’s body after she swallows them. 

M: What part of her body are they in?

C: In this book, they are in the digestive tract. 

M: “Digestive tract,” that’s a big word. But wait, does the “In this book” mean that there are more books?

C:  Yes, there are two more. There is a book on The Circulatory System and another on The Nervous System.

M: Is this book scary?

C: Sort of, maybe for little kids. It could be scary for younger kids. 

M: Do you have a favorite character?

C: Doctor Brain because he’s smart. Really smart. 

M: Do you think that this book is easy to read?

C: Yes, it’s a pretty easy book. It’s a graphic novel, and it has fewer words than a normal book.

M: Did you enjoy reading it? 

C: Yes, I really liked it.

M: Do you think that everyone could like it or do you think that the book is meant for a certain age group?

C: I think that every one could like it. 

M: Do you like the pictures or the drawings?

C: The pictures are pretty good drawing. They do describe the action pretty well. They are colorful. 

M: In some parts, there are facts, right?

C: Yes, there are many facts. Here’s one, “We use nearly 40 muscles to chew and swallow.” 

M: Wow! That a lot of muscles. I wonder if bunnies like us use more or less.

M: So, Caramel, what are three words that describe this book?

C: Action, informative, and colorful.

M: Sounds good to me! And it’s about time to wrap up. What do you say?

C: Stay tuned for more book bunny reviews!

Caramel has enjoyed reading Survive: The Digestive System, illustrated by Hyun-Dong Han, and recommends it to all other little bunnies interested in the human body.

  1. Wait a minute! Marshmallow is now the interviewer? What’s happened to Sprinkles? Has Sprinkles retired?

    I do hope Dr. Brain and Geo are wearing acid proof garments, else their trip through the stomach could give them heartburn.

    1. Sprinkles did not retire. She might come back to interview Caramel next time. But we thought it might be an interesting change of pace. The little bunnies did real well on their own, didn’t they?
