    A gripping account of how a deadly plague swept across the world in the 14th century, killing almost half of the population. Discover how the Black Death reached Europe, the disease’s terrifying symptoms, the desperate efforts to prevent it from spreading, and the devastating effects it had on life and society in the Middle Ages and beyond. Atmospheric illustrations by Daniele Dickman reveal the chaos, fear and confusion that gripped a continent ravaged by the Black Death. Part of the successful Young Reading series from Usborne’s Reading Programme, this is a new title aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories.
