By using a graphic novel format, this informative guide explains the science behind brain tumors and the effect that cancer has on the body in a way that is accessible to young readers. The Medikidz are a group of larger-than-life super heroes who live in Mediland, a living, moving virtual world within the human body. Each character is an expert on one component of human anatomy and the role it plays in fighting the disease: Axon is a brain specialist, Pump has the lowdown on the heart and blood vessels, and Skinderella knows all about the skin and bones. Appropriate humor and adventure offset facts about brain tumors, so young readers can understand Jo{u2019}s illness and become aware of the support and loving care that she needs.
