You Are 25% Banana, Paperback / softback Book

You Are 25% Banana Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Josy Bloggs

Paperback / softback


A brilliantly funny first guide to genetics that is perfect for children aged 5 years and over. This stunningly illustrated book will boggle your brain with astonishing facts, as it shows how we're all related to every living thing on the planet.

Did you know that a grain of rice has more genes than you? Or that you're related to dogs, dung beetles and even daffodils?

Luckily, even though you're 99.9% like a chimpanzee, you're still 100% YOU! The extraordinary world of genetics has never been explained so simply. You'll be amazed at what makes you YOU. Susie Brooks has been writing and editing children's books for more than ten years.

In her worldwide travels, she seeks out the unusual and the extraordinary. Josy Bloggs loves working with layout and colour to create impactful illustration.

She graduated from the University of Huddersfield with an MA in Spatial Design and her grounding in graphic and spatial design has shaped and influenced her art style.

When she is not busy illustrating and designing, she likes to take her dog for long walks or cycle in the Yorkshire countryside.

Her clients include AA Publishing, Arcturus Publishing, John Lewis and WHSmith.
