Grrlscientist Book Review: Pandemic Survival

by Rachel Baker on September 10, 2013

The Guardian is hosting a book review by GrrlScientist about a children’s book about the many disease pandemics that have been around since the dawn of history.

this engaging 128-page book is more than a repository of Trivial Pursuit-like facts. It tells a story, presenting a fair amount of depth about the effects of epidemic and pandemic disease on human culture throughout the ages, the development of human thinking about disease and the various technological innovations that helped open our eyes (and minds) along the way. Lavish illustrations, by the talented artist Bill Slavin, are germane, charming and colourful.
