Myths! Lies! Secrets! Uncover the hidden truth about history’s pandemics, from the Black Death to COVID-19. Perfect for fans of I Survived! and Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales.

During the Black Death in the 14th century, plague doctors wore creepy beaked masks filled with herbs. RIGHT? WRONG! Those masks were from a plague outbreak centuries later—and most doctors never wore anything like that at all!

With a mix of sidebars, illustrations, photos, and graphic panels, acclaimed author Kate Messner delivers the whole truth about diseases like the bubonic plague, cholera, smallpox, tuberculosis, polio, influenza, and COVID-19.

Discover the nonfiction series that smashes everything you thought you knew about history! Don’t miss History Smashers: The Mayflower, Women’s Right to VotePearl Harbor, Titanic, and American Revolution.Author’s note. Resources. Glossary. Selected bibliography. Index. Black-and-white photographs and illustrations.
