"GREAT GOBS OF GUSTATION" Released Nationally

Written by Bill Kirk
with illustrations by Eugene Ruble

Sacramento author Bill Kirk's children's picture book, "GREAT GOBS OF GUSTATION", was released in late August 2013. The book was published by Guardian Angel Publishing in Saint Louis, MO under their Health and Academic Wings imprint, which is ideally suited for children in "read alone" ages 8 - 13.

"GREAT GOBS OF GUSTATION" will be released simultaneously in e-book and hardcopy print form. The e-books will be distributed by Follett, the largest distributor of ebooks to schools and libraries, as well as through the Guardian Angel Publishing web site.

The print version will be available for sale from most online retailers, such as Amazon, Google,, Border Books and Barnes and Noble. It can also be ordered through your local brick and mortar bookstores, including Barnes and Noble and Borders Books.

"GREAT GOBS OF GUSTATION" is the eighth book in a series of anatomical rhymes by children's author Bill Kirk. The series, which is called THE SUM OF OUR PARTS, will eventually cover several anatomical systems including the skeleton, muscles, skin, circulation, respiration and many others. The entire collection will be "kid-friendly" with just the right balance of technical content, humorous verses and anatomical factoids, brought to life through the playful illustrations of artist Eugene Ruble.

If you have ever wondered about the whole eating thing, from taste buds to the taste center in your brain, this is the book to get you started on the search for answers to your questions. Through the combination of snappy rhyming verses and the informative "Factoids", you'll breeze through the subject matter in no time.

You'll be amazed at how fast you will learn about how the taste process works and where it occurs, how many taste buds you have on your tongue and whether you are a super taster or a non-taster. And believe it or not, your brain is super important to the sense of taste. The subject matter and presentation format are ideally suited for elementary school age children 6 to 12 years old and even older students having difficulty with technical jargon.
