    Pim and Pollie go exploring in the factory where their father works. He is a professor in the poo factory. The factory is threatened with closure because everything keeps getting jammed. Fortunately Pim and Pollie have a very good idea…

    In The Poo Factory Theme Park you take a look inside your own stomach and intestines. Where does your food go when you take a bite? What is poo? How exactly do you do a poo? And what causes stomach ache? In this book you will read all about the clever factory in your stomach, from bite to plop!

    Tjarko van der Pol, Marja Baseler and Annemarie van den Brink wrap up accessible and practical information about everything to do with your stomach and intestines in an exciting story. At the back of the book there is a poo file and a pull-out toilet poster.
