                                      Nanolino and his friends are a little bit older now. And once again, it’s all about fascination with and admiration for the beauty of the human body. In a nutshell: The Latest Adventures of the Little Physician. Once again, Nano is shrunk to microscopic size and, as the world’s first bodynaut, makes his way deep into the brain, into joints and cells – and always in search of the soul. We see how he falls in love for the first time, how he explores nose, ears and other sensory cells and how he battles with Professor Shudder’s evil nanorobots – Prof. Dietrich Grönemeyer tells all this and much more in his new book!

                                        What is a cough really? How does the pancreas work? And how do antiobiotics work? Does herbal sleep tea really help you to sleep? If, like Nano, you are 12 years old and cannot wait to become a doctor any longer, you will be full of questions. What a good thing Nano not only has his grandmother’s stock of herbal remedies, but also Dr. X and his freaky assistant to help him make a fascinating journey through the human body. Along the way, he flies through gigantic gorges and catacombs, fights fearful monsters and dangerous killer commandos as well as meeting the tiniest robots imaginable.

                                        The diagnosis is clear: up-to-date and compact, with lots of new information and a fresh, new look – Nano and his friends have undergone a fitness cure. Revised and even more up to date than ever, Prof. Grönemeyer’s Little Physician is at last out on an exciting mission once more. As a microscopic bodynaut, Nano battles treacherous robots and the evil Professor Shudder as he makes his way round the human body.
                                        The Little Physician is much more than a wonderful children’s book. Playfully, Grönemeyer gives the young readers an awareness for their own body and for what will keep it healthy. What we have here is sound medical knowledge, humour and a portion of humaneness that makes the book a worthwhile read even for adults.
