Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9Vignettes describing patients and carriers are interspersed with information that explains this disease. Important material such as signs and symptoms, causes, and precautions are buried in the wordy text. Some of the historical material is more developed than in the better-organized and more comprehensive Tuberculosis (Enslow, 1994) by Alvin, Virginia, and Robert Silverstein. Hyde has included current information (not available when the Enslow book was published), e.g., the FDA approval of a combination drug and the recommendation for using the BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guerin) vaccine. There is an interesting selection of black-and-white illustrations and graphs. Bibliography and/or sources are not included.Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
