Kid’s Book Review: Brains

About the Book and Author / Illustrator

Another bright and bold STEM picture book for young reader by John Devolle.

How do we make our bodies move? Where do all of our amazing ideas come from? How many brains does an octopus really have?
Take a peek inside your head and discover all of the incredible things that your brain can do!


John Devolle studied Fine Art at the University of Westminster and has since run an art gallery in East London, been a graphic designer / art director, and, since 2010, worked as an illustrator on numerous children’s books. John currently lives and works in Dublin.

We also reviewed Germs from the same series by John Devolle, also published by Pushkin Press.
