Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"Join Peter Pea as he journeys alongside a spoonful of vegetables through a person’s digestive tract. Cutely illustrated as a spectacled, bow-tied dork, Peter dons galoshes to trudge through saliva and a hard hat to observe mastication. After that, it’s a game of chase the bolus! A cutaway of the human body periodically lets us know where we are, and declaratory text supplies the (sometimes unpleasant) facts: “Stomach juices turn food into a chunky slush.” No amount of Peter surfing various green liquids (“Cowabunga!”) negates the ick factor, which means that certain kids will enjoy the heck out of this entry in the First Graphics: Body Systems series. Any story that ends with a pea dressed like Indiana Jones outrunning a boulder of feces is okay in our book." - Booklist

"Capstone always makes science fun! . . .A great introduction to the graphic format and the topic at the same time." - It's All Comic to Me blog

Wrapped in Foil blog - Roberta

"Children are definitely curious about how their body works. These books have a gently humorous approach to explaining how food moves through the digestive system and blood moves through the circulatory system. The reader learns new vocabulary words like “platelet” and “bile.” It isn’t difficult to figure out, however, because the illustrations help make abstract concepts concrete. . . .Educators will definitely want to have A Tour of Your Circulatory System and A Tour of Your Digestive System on “hand” for those units on the human body. Both these books could work for reluctant readers at higher grades, because of the interesting visual format." - Wrapped in Foil blog
