Created by the CDC (the U.S. Centers for Disease Control), Operation Outbreak is an exciting graphic novel designed to educate young readers about the spread of infectious diseases and the public health risks they pose. In this story, several concerned students join forces as the Junior Disease Detectives, a group of investigators who are determined to find the source of a deadly flu outbreak and stop it before it takes more lives.

The CDC writes, " We hope] that this story helps to encourage youth interest in the many different career paths available in public health at the local, state and federal levels. . . . We at CDC hope that readers are inspired to become the next generation of real life disease detectives and public health superheroes."

The book also includes Ask a Scientist: How Do People Become Infected with Germs? and Ask a Scientist: How Does My Body Fight Disease? It is beautifully printed in full color on 70-pound, acid-free, archival-quality paper for long life and durability.
