Vicki Cobb is a well-known author of more than eighty-five highly entertaining nonfiction books for children.

Andrew N. Harris holds an Associates Degree from the Art Center of College and Design as well as a BFA in Illustration and Graphic Design from Brigham Young University-Idaho. He is the illustrator of 20 Hungry Piggies, a Fall 07 Millbrook picture book.
By combining simple, yet engaging text; comic-like illustrations; and greatly magnified photomicrographs, this book describes the healing process of a bloodied knee in a fashion that is both entertaining and easy to understand, with, perhaps, the exception of pronunciation of the biological terms. The fun kicks off with our superhero lineup: Platelet, Skin Cell, Blood Cell, Nerve Cell, and Macrophage (a chubby little guy with six arms and utility belt). The drama kicks into higher gear when we meet those no-good villains, the germs, who are especially creepy when they hitch rides on your fingers to gain access to wounds. The book is capped with a glossary, further readings, Web sites, and an index. Part of the Body Battles series that includes titles on broken bones, cavities, colds, stomachaches, and earaches, this is a fine addition for both public and school libraries. Grades K-3. --J. B. Petty
