A funny exploration of the most mysterious organ in the human body from the bestselling and award-winning author of Do Not Lick This Book.

Hi, I'm your brain.
Here are some things you should know about me:
I'm about the size of a pineapple.
I sit behind your eyes. I look like a big walnut (but gooey). I'm not a computer.
So, what do I do? Oh, just about everything. 

A fun-filled book made by brains, about brains, for brains.

About the Author

Sometimes, after they go to bed, he plays his guitar a bit. Idan has degrees in microbiology and in the history and philosophy of science, a diploma in library studies, and a day job that has very little to do with any of the above.
