If antibiotics had not been discovered, would you be alive today?

This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-colour cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers.

Nowadays we can treat all sorts of nasty injuries and illnesses, but it certainly wasn't so straightforward hundreds of years ago. In this title from the fantastic new You Wouldn't Want to Live Without series, you'll learn all about the bizarre and gruesome ways that people used to combat infection: from maggots, to leeches, to moss! As you discover how bacteria work in your body, learn handy hints on how to survive throughout the ages, and discover how medicine is used in the present day, you'll soon see why you really, really, wouldn't want to live without antibiotics!
