A fully-illustrated, sharply-curated book on modern epidemics to arm young readers with easily digestible bite-size pieces of information to face challenges head-on with confidence.

  • Provides a well-researched and curated overview of modern epidemics in an engaging storytelling format
  • Combines histories, stories, facts and findings to provide an all-encompassing view and understanding of the topic
  • Encourages critical thinking and analysis

What is SARS and how did it rock the world in 2003? Patient Zero steps into an elevator in a foreign country and unknowingly carries the virus back to Singapore. This Super Spreader sparks 238 infections . . . and 33 patients die.

What of the COVID-19, also a coronavirus like SARS? Has fear of the virus spread faster than the virus itself? How do we arm ourselves with knowledge and face this head on?

Former TV journalist Hwee Goh and historian/artist David Liew collaborate yet again on a well researched, appealing book of stories, facts and findings for schoolchildren.

The Change Makers series of books will build in children a strong sense of inquiry — to arm them with knowledge in S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) concepts to tackle this brave new world’s unknowns.
