Broadchalk: WHAT MAKES US HUMAN BEINGS ? They begin to grapple with the challenge by observing nature all around them and conclude that animals do everything better than we humans. Downhearted, they seek help from Bettys uncle, Professor Humphrey Tanglewire, a retired inventor. His enthusiasm cheers them up, and he gives then a key word: HANDS and 12 questions to answer.

Betty and Sam now enter upon a journey of exploration which brings then to observe and study the structure and function of the human hand as compared with animal limbs, and the connection between the large human brain and the many activities of the human hand: hands at work, hands that create, hands that talk, hands that see, hands that make music, hands in sport, hands that love, and finally how each human hand is different and how each one of us can be identified by his finger prints.

All in all, the children decide that YOUR HANDS ARE YOU. Grumpy Chalky becomes a joyous, smiling teacher after she goes over Bettys and Sams project folder. She gives them top marks. For the rest of the morning, all classes are cancelled to the delight of the whole class in order to make time for Betty and Sam to present their work.

The children become the heroes of the day. The text is copiously illustrated in a comic cartoon style to amuse and entertain the reader during the intended learning process.
