Resource Description

This engaging comic book follows two characters – Yellow Fever and Bubonic Plague – as they learn about the human body’s immune response and the history of disease transmission. The readable, fun text provides a good level of detail of the topic, clear descriptions of concepts and vocabulary, and is accompanied by compelling visuals that help students understand microorganism structure and bodily processes, labelled diagrams, and a timeline of events. Useful as a class read-aloud to engage students, for students to extend learning, and for teachers to use extracts on specific topics to support learning. Log in to read the full review.
