From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-These books about the human body are short on clearly presented information and long on confusing illustrations. Digestion, for example, describes how pancreatic juice "...travels through Santorini's duct and the duct of Wirsung to enter the duodenum at the ampulla of Vater." This is an unnecessarily complex explanation of this part of the digestive process for the intended audience. The illustrations show various organs floating in white space with no sense of proportion to other structures. The "Interpretation of a Stimulus as Pain" diagram in The Nervous System simply shows a blue arrow traveling up the spinal cord. Forget this series and stick with the many clearly written titles available on this topic.
