Dr. Walter Traprock, author of the famous "Traprock Trilogy," herein presents an amusing, farcical tale of an excursion through the human alimentary tract as far as the colon and return. The return journey is equally humorous, but is decidedly more perilous in every respect. "The Calomels Are Coming" is the theme song. The illustrations are cleverly adapted to the text and add greatly to the enjoyment of the book, which is worth a few hours of anybody's time.
