Germs: Fact and Fiction, Friends and Foes
Illustrated by James Ransome

Come meet the good, the bad, and the ugly—yes, germs!
There’s so much to discover about germs. Did you know that germs make your stomach growl as they break down your food? Or that they can travel the world on anything from fleas and ticks to trains and buses?

Told from the perspective of Sam the Salmonella, this informative picture book introduces young readers to helpful and harmful germs, exploring their discovery; the breakout of historic diseases; the invention of pasteurization, vaccination, and penicillin; and other fascinating details about the world of microscopic organisms.

An amusing more than informative overview of germs for an audience that may find the whole business mildly bemusing. —Kirkus Reviews


Come on in, pull up a chair and stay awhile. Readers of my books now have a place to have some of their questions answered about the wonderful and mysterious world of writing. O.K., maybe not all that mysterious, but writing for me is one way to share my thoughts and interests with others. So, you came to the right place if you were just wondering about my early inspirations and how I began writing.

One of the most important things I do as a writer is to read, so you can also find out about some of my favorite books for kids and meet the illustrator of many of my books, husband and collaborator, James Ransome. And finally, find out more about the books. Enjoy your visit!

Read and Relax,

Lesa Cline-Ransome
