Tastes Like Music: 17 Quirks of the Brain and Body
by Maria Birmingham
illustrated by Monika Melnychuk

We are all unique and talented people, but some of us have traits and abilities that are quite astounding! Synesthetes can taste music, tetrachromats can see nearly one hundred million colours, people with hyperdontia have lots more teeth, and anosmics have no sense of smell! All these quirks and more are explained in this truly interesting book that illuminates the ways in which our bodies and brains work. 

A kid-friendly, accessible book; wonder-filled and remarkable.
