A Tour of Your Nervous System

A Tour of Your Nervous System
by Molly Kolpin
Illustrated by Chris B. Jones
Capstone Press, 2014. Graphic Nonfiction, 25 p.

Here is another series in the growing market of nonfiction books presented in graphic novel format.  There are five in this series that feature the major systems of the human body.  In this volume Nelly Neuron takes the reader on a tour of the nervous system.  She names the parts of a neuron and explains how a message is carried along a neuron to the spinal column and on to the brain. The information, though limited, is good and the graphic format makes it accessible and appealing to a fairly young audience. Others in the series feature the digestive system, the respiratory system, the circulatory system and the skeletal muscular system.
