The Adventures of Medical Man: Kids' Illnesses and Injuries Explained (Paperback)
Being sick or injured is no fun for children, but not knowing what is happening may be worse.
Enter Dr. Michael Evans, who will explain to young readers everything they need to know when an illness or injury occurs. Uniquely structured around five different movie genres and one comic book, each chapter features a common illness or injury with Dr. Mike in the starring role, explaining the causes, symptoms and cures.
Whether it's a nut allergy in the action-packed "They Came From Mars ," a broken wrist in the bone-chilling "The Werewolf Who Snapped" or strep throat in the suspense-filled "Adventures of Medical Man and Wondrous Boy," each story is packed with fascinating medical information. Other common conditions covered in the book include concussion, ear infection and asthma -- all vividly explained.
Complete with diagrams, sidebars and a glossary -- and dramatized by Gareth Williams's stunning illustrations -- this book will be a comfort to any child dealing with an injury or illness.
