    Attack of the Persistent Cold Virus and Other Poems is the Palanca-winning* children’s poetry collection of author Mia A. Buenaventura. The book takes a look at germs, viruses, and bacteria, and teaches kids how to stay clean and healthy. Full of rhyme and whimsy, this book also shows that while there are villains in this microscopic world, there are also heroes like the white blood cell that valiantly protects the body from harm.

    Mia A. Buenaventura is a multi-awarded independent writer and director. Her first book, Old Big Ben, is inspired by her concern for whale sharks and is also available in Central Bookstores. She does talks on marine conservation.

    *63rd Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature, first prize, English division, poetry for children.
