We had enough trouble getting hold of a copy of this book, so we took the step to get it scanned and remastered and reprinted – and it looks beautiful.
The booklet is paperback 43 pages, each one is illustrated, printed on 100g/m² paper with 200g/m² cover, staple bound like the original.
The only addition is on the back page where we have added a barcode and some details about the reprint.
No credit is given in the book to the author, Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss), though his style is easy to recognise.
This Is Ann – She’s dying to meet you. Dr. Seuss. Malaria.
In 2002 the genome sequence of Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite causing the most severe type of human malaria, was completed. Thus began the post genomic era of Malaria research and a wealth of new observations of the basic biology of malaria parasites that are leading to new approaches to fighting the disease.
With thanks to Don Powell and Matt Berriman from the Sanger Institute, we now have a 3m * 1m beautiful printout of the genome map as part of the collection and the opening exhibit to an explanation of some of the research that this information has enabled.
Finally ! 2 years and a couple of favours later, the Malaria Museum is now the proud owner of Dr. Seuss’ “This is Ann”.
After a tip-off from Chris in Rio de Janiero that the book existed and a photo copy of a photo copy to take home I began the hunt to get hold of a copy.
It hasn’t been easy on the Museum budget, but finally, with the further help of Lenore in the USA and Daniel in Ireland we have managed to get a great condition copy.
Thank you to those involved.
