Gr. 4-7. The authors, familiar for their well-researched, clearly written, topical books for middle- and high-school students, turn their attention this time to lyme disease. Without sensationalizing, they discuss the history of the illness, the biology of the tick that carries it, treatment, and prevention, including up-to-date information on the vaccines now being developed. The layout is attractive and uncluttered, with interesting sidebars and plenty of colorful photographs. Some photos seem generic, but the enlarged pictures of ticks will attract lots of middle-graders. A time line, a glossary, a bibliography of both children's and adult books, and a comprehensive, student-oriented list of organizations and Web sites will be helpful for reports as well as for answering medical questions.
