Avoid Meeting a Body Snatcher! by Fiona MacDonaldIts 1828 and you're a medical student at the world-famous Edinburgh university. You are keen to start disecting bodies to learn all about anatomy, but by careful who you buy your body from- some people will do anything to get their hands on one! This book explores the body-snatching craze that gripped 19th century Britian, including the infamous Burke and Hare murders. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of the darker side of 19th century science. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
