Pandemic Planet gives young readers a clear, insightful, non-alarmist introduction to viruses and pandemics.

Covid-19 has changed our world almost beyond recognition, but viruses and pandemics have always been with us. Pandemic Planet explores how we define pandemics, describes pandemics through the ages, from the Black Death to SARS, and assesses how we can arm ourselves against them, both at an individual and a global level.

The matter-of-fact, clear and non-alarmist approach will reassure anxious readers. The book also looks at how we can learn from pandemics, as well as revealing some unexpectedly positive outcomes.

Following on from Plastic Planet and Hot Planet, Pandemic Planet will feature the same blend of illustrations and photos and a striking cover, and is written by the award-winning science author Anna Claybourne.
