Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0070318298, Paperback)

Lup dup, lup dup, lup dup. Just what makes that mysterious noise in your chest day and night, night and day? And how does the heart actually work, anyway? If your grandfather just happens to be the man who created and edited the world's favorite textbook on the heart, you might get some pretty interesting answers to your "heartfelt" questions. This bright and colorful picturebook looks at the heart and circulation is based on a real question-and-answer session between heart expert J. Willis Hurst, his 10-year-old grandson, Stuart. Inside the book, you'll find kid-tested answers to question like : How does my heart pump? Where does blood come from? Why is the blood in the arteries red? Why is the blood in the veins dark blue? What are heart valves? What is plaque? What is a heart attack? Is heart disease contagious? My heart is strongÑwhat can I do to keep it healthy? ItÕs a fun exploration of a mysterious aspect of our bodies that will fascinate readers of every age ... from 10 to 100.
