Action-packed stories with a superhero, sci-fi, adventure-type theme are the backdrops in this clever, entertaining book that teaches kids about six common illnesses and injuries that they or their friends may encounter. A suspense-filled serial about a young boy's nut allergy is interrupted by a detective story about concussion, a werewolf encounter about broken bones, a Batman-inspired comic about strep throat, a submarine adventure about ear infection, and an Indiana Jones-like actioner about asthma.
The scientific explanations are distilled in simple, accessible language, helped by clearly labelled diagrams and glossary.
Fun and educational, this book's a blockbuster!
