Humming Heroes: Inside The Nose That Almost Nobody Knows
‘Humming Heroes’ is a hardcover rhyming picture book that aims to explain the
complexities of the human immune system to everyone.
How Can Complex Medical Topics Become Accessible and Intriguing to Patients?
As a doctor with extensive experience, I’ve been fascinated by the curiosity my patients show towards understanding the human body. Their keen interest, especially in complex topics like the immune system, heart disease, and dementia, highlights the power of narrative in making these subjects accessible and intriguing. This insight led to a creative collaboration with my brother, a talented writer, for our ‘Wooly Wise Educational Series’.
Our debut book, ‘Humming Heroes’, is a venture with Lumienta Publishing to demystify the human immune system for all ages. This rhyming picture book, illustrated in the style of needle-felted art, makes learning both fun and informative.
The story unfolds in the imaginative setting of a child’s nose, narrating the adventures of a Lymphocyte family—comprising a wise Mother, brave Father, determined Brother, and heroic Baby—as they battle invading microorganisms. The narrative takes an imaginative leap, combining the child’s humming with the Lymphocytes’ efforts, symbolizing the power of unity in overcoming challenges.
