Zoonoses. Children's book

A fully illustrated children's book about zoonotic diseases.

I created this book for my bachelor thesis at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf, Germany. It's all about zoonotic diseases – those which can be transmitted from animals to humans and otherwise. As a matter of fact, the majority of all known human infections are either zoonotic or of zoonotic origin. The book explains a lot of facts about pathogens, desease vectors, prevention strategies in an entertaining and comprehensive manner. 
I am responsible for both text and illustrations.
