Synopsis

Tedd Arnold's previous books about Chip, Parts and More Parts, are raucous, creative knee-slappers that have become true kid favorites-- perhaps because they so humorously express the worries all kids have as they get to know their bodies: worries about belly button fuzz and earwax and loose teeth.
Now here's the funniest Parts book yet--one that reintroduces our ner-vous hero while also depicting more than 100 body-part idioms. I lost my head, my nose is running, I sang my heart out . . . You won't be able to keep a straight face as you enjoy this clever, wacky, boldly illustrated book.
