My Body is a Superhero

How Our Immune System Defends Us Against Illnesses

Viruses, bacteria, causes of illness – we’d all like to avoid them. But how?

Matthias von Bornstädt is a doctor of medicine, and he provides specialist information about what happens when our body gets infected, and how we can strengthen our powers of defence. Illness can happen to anybody, and that includes ten-year-old Sam.  A virus gang has invaded his body. Just like pirates, they start to do nasty things inside him. Luckily, there are defending heroes who are there to protect him. And in the end, they prove to be stronger than the viruses. Sam tells his flu story in a relaxed and even funny way, at the right level for his young readers. An encouraging book with lots of healthy tips.
