by Illia Svirsky

A brave pigtailed girl and her trusty stuffed sidekick battle the scourge that is the seasonal flu.

These pesky viruses messed with the wrong girl!

Flu aims to educate young readers about viruses, flu symptoms, treatments, and precautionary measures while reassuring children that colds are only temporary. While they may feel crummy in the moment, they will feel much better soon.

Illia Svirsky is a teacher and early childhood educator. His award-winning scribbles have appeared on screen, in print, online, and in this book. Born in Belarus, raised in Israel, married in Taiwan, and educated in Canada, he now spends most of his time in his own world with his wife, daughter, son, feline, and imaginary friends.
