Avoid Meeting a Body Snatcher Paperback
Illustrated by David Antram
Part of the The Danger Zone series
It's 1828 and you're a medical student at the world-famous Edinburgh university.
You are keen to start dissecting bodies to learn all about anatomy, but be 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 Britain, 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.
