IIRC, the main story was about the rabies vaccine, but I recall learning about pasteurisation from this, so either it's described in the supplemental material at the back, or I had a such a burning desire for more Louis Pasteur that I checked out further material from the library.

We had all of them growing up! Or at least a lot of them!

Hey, I first learned about Pasteur from that book too! I can't remember how many of them we had, but I know we also had the Terry Fox book.

I seem to remember the Helen Keller one the most.

We have a big stack of Value Tales books at my parents' cottage. I'm planning on retiring off them.

(Who am I kidding, I could never sell them.)

The years have fallen away and I can see tiny soldiers marching through a syringe again. That's that book, right?

The classic: Sheet pan, parchment, brie, honey drizzle. Bake at 350F for a few minutes, around 7, until it starts to ooze. Eat on crackers with tart apples and nuts.

Also makes a good ham sandwich.

Hmm, it's a wedge so it'd probably squidge everywhere, but that's probably not going to stop me trying that anyway tbh.

That's what the parchment paper is for. Don't leave that tastiness on the pan -- and besides, when it squidges a little is when you know it's ready.

My sister used to just microwave brie and eat it with a spoon.
