Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amber Hurt
This engaging graphic novel begins with an illustration of the spread of infectious disease—a nineteenth century farmer transmitting tuberculosis to the families that buy his milk. The author explains the prevailing theory of sickness at the time—evil spirits. Then, we are introduced to Pasteur, a scientist who is working to understand food spoilage. While readers may be familiar with pasteurization as it applies to milk, Fandel shows that Pasteur did not start with dairy. Fandel shows Pasteur's work that led to disproving the theory of spontaneous generation and the development of pasteurization to help winemakers. The scientific method and process is illustrated well throughout the book. At the end of the book Fandel includes more facts about Pasteur. There is also a glossary with a pronunciation guide for all included words, information about the FactHound Internet search site, related books, and a bibliography. The illustrations work well with the text to enhance the reading experience. A good supplement to a history or science unit, it is part of the "Inventions and Discovery" series.
