This interactive series will enthrall young and reluctant readers (Ages 8-12) by making them part of the story, inviting them to become the main character. Each book uses humorous illustrations to depict the sometimes dark and horrific side of life during important eras in history.

In New York, in the early years of the 20th century, several families contract typhoid fever, an unpleasant and sometimes fatal disease. All seem to have caught it from the same person: a cook whom the newspapers call 'Typhoid Mary'. How can she be stopped from spreading the deadly germs?
