WATCH: Digestion Is A Basically A Carnival For Food, According To Mary Roach’s New Book Trailer

In spite of its questionable sound quality, the book trailer for Mary Roach’s latest title Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal is a totally adorable feat in claymation.

The book takes us on a Magic School Bus-esque ride through the digestive process, complete with human oddities, and Roach is our own personal Miss Frizzle. The trailer promises “glands and glee, bile and smiles” for visitors to the gastrointestinal carnival, in this case, broccoli. Tiny broccolis! Riding esophageal roller coasters! Playing intestinal ski-ball! Testing their strength in the mandible! So cute. Except for — predictably — the end, which is rather unpleasant.

Check out the trailer below.
