"An engaging way for students to learn the scientific process . . . The illustrations are graphic enough for gore loving students, and there’s enough information for budding scientists to study and report on."

Librarian's Book Review, May 2013

"This selection gives an exciting spin to an ordinary subject. Readers will enjoy cracking the case along with Annie and her team of super-sleuths."

Book Buzz, September 2013

"Graphic novel style illustration make this book very attractive to today’s students."

Richardson Independent School District, February 12, 2013

"Students will like the graphic novel format. Readers will also like the scientific process to help them work through each disease . . . the CSI-style methodology will pull in reluctant readers . . . inviting to a non-science person . . . The book is cleverly written through this cartoon-style heroine."

Arlington Independent School District, March 25, 2013

"Who would have thought that learning about flesh-eating bacteria could be so interesting and just plain fun? . . . It’s the good guys against bad guys kind of book and you hope the good guys win."

Clark County School District, April 2013

"Annie Biotica stars in this series as a ‘Disease Scene Investigator.’ In each title, Biotica walks us through one of the body systems. Five ‘cases’ in which the back story and symptoms of diseases attributed to that system are presented…With its colorful, concise format, this series is as delightful as gross body books come."

Library Media Connection, August/September 2013

"Young scientists will thoroughly enjoy following Annie's process, and are rewarded at the end with three cases to solve on their own."

Denver Public Schools, March 28, 2013

". . .this set is exciting and informative. Color photos with plenty of gross-out close-ups and numerous illustrations add to the appeal."

School Library Journal, April 2013

"Informative as well as entertaining, Annie tells readers about five cases . . . and ends by explaining how to protect oneself from each culprit . . . Lots can be learned here."
