520    "From the kidnapping of Einstein's brain to the horrifying
       end of Louis XIV's heart, the mysteries surrounding some 
       of history's most famous body parts range from medical to 
       macabre. Carlyn Beccia explores the misadventures of 
       noteworthy body parts through history and uses them as 
       springboards for exploring topics such as forensics, DNA 
       testing, brain science, organ donation, and cloning. The 
       engaging, conversational tone of the text, the wonderfully
       creepy subject matter, and the delightfully detailed art 
       are sure to capture even the most reluctant readers. The 
       famous people and their body parts include: Galileo 
       Galilei / Fingers Louis XIV / Heart George Washington / 
       Teeth Franz Hayden / Head Beethoven / Hair Abraham Lincoln
       / Body Cheng and Eng Bunker / Liver Phineas Gage / Skull 
       John Wilkes Booth / Neck vertebrae Vincent Van Gogh / Ear 
       Sarah Bernhardt / Leg Mata Hari / Head Albert Einstein / 
       Brain Elvis Presley / Wart Thomas Edison / Last Breath"--
