Miscellaneous notes from the author
One act play set in the imagination of a character fighting off an infection, where the protagonists - germs and blood cells - act-out their roles. Fantasy, but with a lot of educational value.
When Mr Gauche accidentally hammers a nail through his thumb, he only wants medical help from the Doctor, but he gets a thorough lesson in the body's defence mechanisms anyway. A musical version is available here.
