What happens to food after you eat it?
In this newly illustrated book, complete with photos, Paul Showers and Edward Miller take you on a journey through the human digestive system into the mouth, down the gullet, into the stomach, and finally into the small and large intestines. You will learn what each of these body parts does to help transform the food you eat. And you will also find out what happens to the food your body cannot use.
Everything that happens inside your body whenever you swallow a bite of food will amaze you!

Paul Showers has written
many of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series' most popular titles, among them Where Does the Garbage Go?, illustrated by Randy Chewning. Mr. Showers lives in Palo Alto, CA.
Wendy Watson has illustrated numerous classic picture books, including A, B, C, D, Tummy, Toes, Hands, Knees by B. J. Hennessey. Ms. Watson lives in Groton, VT.
Ages 5-8. One of the classics of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, What Happens to a Hamburger (1970, 1985) reappears with attractive new illustrations, enhanced in a few places with photos that show body parts such as the epiglottis and the stomach lining. From the silver diner featured on the jacket to the stylized plates of food and clear diagrams of the digestive system within, Miller's digital artwork has a jaunty, retro look. The diner's cheerful waiter serves as the narrator, explaining the process of digestion step-by-step. Carolyn Phelan
