From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Tocci grabs students' attention by opening this book with the dramatic stories of the first recipients of the wonder drug, then moves on to the story of the man who discovered it. Discussion of Fleming's childhood, medical school career, early research with microbes, and his military medical career studying infections are provided as background. His discovery of penicillin and the effects it had on his life and on the world are discussed in detail. Large type and lots of white space make this title accessible, and the black-and-white photographs enhance the well-written text. Activities for students reinforce the principles that are presented. A sound choice for science and biography collections.
