Created through a collaboration of six University of Chicago medical students and one University of Chicago MFA student in 2011, this wonderful educational comic helps kids (and adults!) understand the virology and symptoms of influenza.The process and value of immunization against the flu is also described. Q&A inset boxes are used to clarify terms and provide reinforcement of learning. Compelling watercolored character-driven illustrations bring to life the metaphors of the text. A last page glossary of terms further clarifies the text. A Hektoen Journal article about the book can be found here.
