But when the tower is broken into by a mysterious virus, the important instructions are ignored and things go horribly wrong. Can Alina and her friends get the help they need to save the thing they care about most – you?

Enjoy learning about DNA and how the new Coronavirus is affecting our bodies, with this simple, fun and fascinating explanation in this illustrated, narrative non-fiction tale for children 9+ years (and their favourite adults)
