Pub. Date:

Hugely entertaining and wildly offbeat, Bloody Moments combines engaging, humorous text with illustrations that at once set the tone for the book. Join Mabel on an adventure into the past and through the hilarious, amazing, disgusting but true discoveries in the history of medicine. Go back to the times before antibiotics and anesthetics, to bloodletting and leeches; learn about digestion through a 6-inch gunshot wound; stumble upon the idea of vaccinations; or drift gently into Alexander Fleming's germ plate and the discovery of penicillin. All these events are accompanied by slightly bent illustrations and text that is funny to the bone.
