It's 1828 and you're a medical student at the world-famous Edinburgh university. You are keen to start dissecting bodies to learn all about anatomy, but be careful who you buy your body from- some people will do anything to get their hands on one! This book explores the body-snatching craze that gripped 19th century Britain, including the infamous Burke and Hare murders.

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like in the heyday of the Inca empire. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
