Battle with the Bugs: An Imaginative Journey Through the Immune System (Human Body Detectives)
Human Body Detectives Merrin and Pearl are at it again. Their magical ability to jump into people’s bodies and explore their systems (digestive, skeletal, nervous ( June 2014), circulatory, and immune) combines science with their fun adventures to help kids understand their anatomy and how their bodies work. In Battle with the Bugs, Merrin and Pearl enter their cousin, Max’s, immune system to find out why he was sick. During their journey, they travel up Max’s nose, ride on a white blood cell into battle against the bacteria that was making Max sick, and use their knowledge of nutrition to successfully end Max’s fever. In the end, they not only learn about the different types of white blood cells and what they do to keep us healthy, they also get a firsthand lesson on the functions of the immune system. Battle with the Bugs is one of five stories featured in the Human Body Detectives series, along with, A Heart Pumping Adventure, Osteoblasts to the Rescue, The Lucky Escape, and Brainiacs, debuting in June 2014.
