What happens to a dead mouse?
Mark Benecke, the forensic pathologist known for his interest in vampires, has written a book for young children about what happens to the cadaver of a mice. It was recently translated into Danish, and is actually a very illustrative way to introduce young children to some of the processes that dead bodies undergo. As this is a subject that is a bit tabu, I think it is in fact brave of both Benecke and the Danish publisher to present this book.
