Eight-year-old Uku is a kid just like any other. He likes spending time with friends, playing games on his phone, and listening to loud music. So as to have the energy to do all these things, Uku also likes gorging on all kinds of junk food and soft drinks. Yet although the boy is content with the way things are, his body certainly isn’t – his belly has a hard time digesting that sort of food, his eyes itch, and his head aches. When Uku’s belly decides to revolt one day, his other body parts quickly follow and demand their own right to a better life.

Helena Koch’s The Belly’s Revolt is a humorous children’s book that teaches how to better listen to your body.
