More About This Title Germs!


An imaginative and action-packed story with a strong message for children to wash their hands, featuring a special four page gatefold fold-out showing the armies lined up for battle

Our story begins with the rumble of war as Sam, a young germ, is conscripted to fight in the Germ Army. Their ultimate goal? To attack the boy in striped pyjamas who comes into the bathroom each day. When the boy in the striped pyjamas fails to wash his hands one day, the germs seize their opportunity to attack, only to be met with the friendly Antibody Army. A great battle ensues, but which side is Sam really on? This hilarious look at the germs that live with us every day and their battle to take control of our bodies features a strong message—be sure to wash your hands!
