Description

"Disgusting and futile medical practices are always a pleasure to contemplate. Beccia, following closely in the spirit of The Raucous Royals (2008)--dry-witted artwork, conversational text, engaging historical detective work--asks readers to guess which 'cures' may actually have helped a handful of ailments."--Kirkus Reviews

"Beccia's droll text is greatly enhanced by her witty single- and double-page illustrations, filled with humorous details. Boys will especially enjoy the ickier cures (anyone for urine drinking?), while teachers and librarians will welcome the careful research and the useful appended bibliography."--Booklist

"Digital mixed-media color illustrations and manageable blocks of text invite reluctant readers to browse this high-interest title."--School Library Journal
