From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 Inspector Bodyguard, Keeper of the Health, is hard at work, keeping all systems running smoothly in U, the human body that is his domain. One by one, he and the body's defense systems thwart a series of invaders: the common cold, infection, too much junk food, chicken-pox, and a piece of misdirected food. The body's reaction to danger, cold, and extreme heat are also examined. Each chapter is divided into two parts, the Inspector's adventure, followed by a factual examination of the circumstance. The writing in both areas is clear and interesting. The stories will get readers involved, and the explanations are just detailed enough to be meaningful and useful. Illustrations are full-color, cartoon-like drawings that will appeal to most children; an occassional accurate color diagram is included. This one is more specific and limited in scope than David C. Knight's Your Body's Defenses (McGraw-Hill, 1974; o.p.) or Donahue and Capellaro's Germs Make Me Sick (Knopf, 1975), but the illustrations and nature of the text should make it more enticing to children.
