Parts

by Tedd Arnold Illustrated by Tedd Arnold

First, his hair started falling out. Then skin started peeling from his toes. Now something gray and wet — his brain? — has fallen out of his nose. Is this normal? Or is this boy coming unglued? This hilarious predecessor to More Parts combines the perfect levels of humor and grossness to leave readers in stitches!

The bestselling creator of Jumping on the Bed and Green Wilma presents an uproarious new story that deals with a subject of deepest interest to every young child — the stuff the body sheds.

Parents will appreciate the reassuring message that it's all quite normal, while Arnold's comical illustrations are guaranteed to make young readers laugh their heads off. Full color.
